These projects raise awareness for the importance of preserving our region’s heritage. They represent all six New England states and countless lenses through which to examine New England’s past.
The Historic New England Book Prize is awarded annually to a book that advances the understanding of life in New England from the past to today by examining its architecture, landscape, and material culture. This also includes works in the decorative arts, archaeology, historic preservation, the history of photography, and other related subjects.
The Prize for Collecting Works on Paper is awarded annually to a collector or dealer who has assembled or helped save a significant collection of historic material related to New England or to the nation as a whole. The Herbert and Louise Whitney Fund Community Preservation Grant Program, administered by Historic New England, provides grants of $1,000 each to one small to mid-sized heritage organization in each of the six New England states.
