From Historic New England experts
Historic New England owns very few structures that are not considered a part of the historic house museum collection. Buildings and outbuildings alike are carefully preserved. Space use — whether museum, administration, apartment, or storage — is monitored for its effect on the structure and the integrity of the building materials.
Weatherization, loosely defined here as the activities necessary to make a structure more energy efficient, needs to happen at many of these structures in order to cut energy consumption. At Historic New England, our challenge is to fit any work required for weatherization within the context of our preservation philosophy.
