For Preservation Professionals and Students
Historic New England’s preservation experts share knowledge and expertise through white papers and special programs
Learn about Historic New England’s approach to preservation in a series of white papers on a range of topics. Our preservation philosophy guides practical decision-making and articulates our mission to share preservation knowledge with the public. Many projects include a goal of increasing energy efficiency at Historic New England sites. We periodically offer special programs for students, professionals, and advocates in the preservation field.
The property care team at Historic New England is responsible for the ongoing assessment, maintenance, and preservation of our historic sites. Property care staff are organized by region and scope of work. Regional preservation managers and landscape managers work closely with staff at each of our historic sites to coordinate routine maintenance as well as preservation work and special projects.
Programs for Professionals and Students
Our staff shares knowledge with other preservation professionals and students at an annual field school and other programs. Check our events calendar.
