Historic Homeowner Member Benefit

Personalized advice on your old or historic home for Sustainer, Ambassador, and Patron members

Thank you for supporting Historic New England and joining us in the hard work of preserving New England’s distinctive sense-of-place by caring for your own historic home! Whether your home is a rural farmstead built in the 1700s or an urban three decker built in the 1900s, Historic New England applauds your efforts to maintain your home in ways that are affordable, practical, and respect its historical and architectural character. New England has the broadest collection of historic houses in the country, with nearly one third of the region’s single-family homes built more than eighty years ago! It is through the dedication and stewardship of individual homeowners that so many historic properties are preserved, enhancing the sustainability and vitality of communities throughout the region.

If you are a Sustainer, Ambassador, or Patron member, your membership includes the opportunity to schedule a thirty-minute phone call to talk one-on-one with a preservation expert at Historic New England about your house. Contact us here to schedule your phone call.
