Welcome Dear Friend,

Sharing and saving go hand in hand at Historic New England. To broaden public engagement in our mission of preservation and education, we must share what we save. By visiting a house museum, attending a lecture, partaking of a glamorous evening event, or supporting a particular program or project, you are contributing to this mission in a vital way. This past year we focused our efforts on expanding and improving our engagement with members and others who share our interests. We revamped our member magazine and website, providing audiences with a fresh, new way of seeing and reading about all that Historic New England has to offer. In the spring we completed restoration work for the May opening of the 1878 Eustis Estate Museum and Study Center in Milton, Massachusetts, creating a more accessible house museum model. Numerous guests joined us for regional events to highlight some of our properties and communicate our mission: A Century on the Hill at Otis House in Boston; An Evening at Governor John Langdon House in New Hampshire; and Feast for the Farms at Casey Farm in Rhode Island. We established a community partnership with the Housatonic Valley Association (HVA), a conservation consortium that operates in the western sections of Connecticut and Massachusetts and in eastern New York. The HVA relocated its Massachusetts regional office to Merwin House, Historic New England’s 1825 property in Stockbridge. We continued our successful Community Preservation Grants program, a concept that originated with founder William Sumner Appleton, which we reinstituted during our centennial anniversary to make connections with smaller preservation and heritage organizations. Due to the increasing popularity of our homeschool program, we expanded it to accommodate more families. As we continue identifying new audiences and opportunities to interact with them, we strive to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of New England life for current and future generations. We offer you our gratitude for helping Historic New England save and share our regional heritage. Thank you for your generous support.
