Explore Historic New England’s new digital visitor experiences

Jan 12, 2021

Historic New England offers six new online experiences for perfect “at home getaways”

Thanks to a $300,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities through the federal government’s CARES Act, we now offer more chances for you to explore Historic New England.

Staff combined the rich resources in our archival collection with outstanding new photography, videos, and oral histories to tell new stories at five of our historic properties and two neighborhoods in Vermont. The tours provide vivid details about room interiors, family records, artwork, architectural drawings, furnishings, landscapes, and more.

From your computer or mobile device, you can stroll through buildings and landscapes and see spaces like attics, basements, unrestored rooms, and outbuildings that are not on public tours. Each of these experiences allows you to explore and engage with us from home in a way that has not been possible before now. We invite you to have a look at our new visitor experiences.
