Old houses were built to last. Find out how, with a little TLC, yours can stay in good condition for many years to come. Meet staff members of Historic New England and Preservation Timber Framing, as well as representatives from the South Berwick Historic District Commission and Old Berwick Historical Society.

Find the answers to questions about your old house, including preventive maintenance, caring for older double-hung windows, identifying architectural style, choosing paint colors, restoring old barns, rules for homeowners in a historic district, and researching the history of the families who once lived in your home. Feel free to bring photos of your house along with your questions.
