Historic Homeowner Membership


From paint colors to pantries, eaves to energy conservation, Historic Homeowner membership helps you preserve and maintain the character and value of your historic home, whether it was built in 1750 or 1950.

This membership offers dedicated attention, knowledgeable support, and customized service that no shelter magazine or how-to guide can provide.

In addition to personalized support for your own old-house questions, enjoy access to members-only behind-the-scenes events on topics tailored to preserving houses. Through the Historic Homeowner program, members share in protecting the unique character of historic properties throughout the region.

Tax-Deductible Amount: $70.00
