The National Trust for Historic Preservation


The National Trust for Historic Preservation is a privately funded non-profit organization that provides leadership, education and advocacy to save America's diverse historic places and revitalize our communities.

The Trust has been “protecting the irreplaceable” for over 50 years. According to their website, “The need for the National Trust has increased since its founding in 1949. When historic buildings and neighborhoods are torn down or allowed to deteriorate, a part of our past disappears forever. When that happens, we lose history that helps us know who we are, and we lose opportunities to live and work in the kinds of interesting and attractive surroundings that older buildings can provide.”

The Trust has a world-class magazine called Preservation, which highlights preservation issues, including what properties have been lost, threatened, or saved, as well as historic property listings.

Some of the most significant historic places are part of the Trust’s network of museums across the country, which span a variety of topics and time periods. Members of the Trust receive free or discounted admission at many of these sites, which include:
