Annual Report | 2016 Fiscal Year

MESSAGE from the Chairman

“I remain confident that through their hard work and commitment, The Trustees’ fiscal health and reputation are in good hands.”

I

I am writing to you at a historic time for The Trustees. We have just completed the acquisition of the Steep Hill parcel, 20.5 acres within the Crane Estate that was held back from the original 1949 donation of Castle Hill, and which now means that the entire estate is, at long last, fully protected in perpetuity. This effort would not have been possible without the generosity of many of you: more than 700 donors from 199 communities across the state and beyond contributed to this critical conservation effort. That effort, along with our merger with The FARM Institute in Edgartown and our acquisition of Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, has made this one of the most exciting years in our 125-year history. But these transactions belong to the current fiscal year, so I must look forward to reporting more about them in next year’s Annual Report. Fiscal Year 2016, though, was also an active one in the land conservation arena. We acquired several important properties, including 16 acres on Pegan Hill in Natick—which enabled us to greatly increase our existing reservation on the Dover/Natick line—and the Donovan Parcel in Manchester-by-the-Sea, which adds 30 acres, including valuable habitat for endangered species, to our Agassiz Rock Reservation. Our Bringing Our Stories to Life campaign to revitalize our cultural properties is winding down, and the work it has enabled this year has been nothing short of spectacular. At Naumkeag, the Chinese Garden has been fully restored and is open once again to the public, as is the Italian Garden at Castle Hill. Work has now begun towards revitalizing Mabel Choate’s greenhouse and farming operations at Naumkeag. And at The Old Manse, a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities has been received to assist us in creating a new and much needed welcome center on the footprint of the old barn, which will provide space to properly welcome visitors to this historic site. In the area of engagement, The KITCHEN and the Appleton Farms Booth at Boston Public Market have given us a very visible presence in Boston, providing a valuable connection for the organization and its mission to the people of Boston and beyond. A new day camp at Appleton Farms has been very well received by the local community, and on our 125th birthday in May, thousands of guests came out to visit nine of our historic homes which had been opened for free in celebration of our big anniversary. This has been a year of tremendous growth, driven by the ambitious goals of the strategic plan. Barbara and the staff have responded to the challenges laid out in The Path Forward with dedication and focus. I remain confident that through their hard work and commitment, The Trustees’ fiscal health and reputation are in good hands. The year ahead is the fourth in our five-year strategic plan, and the bar is raised even further, but we are well poised to succeed in accomplishing everything we have all set out to do.

W

When I look back over this, our 125th year as Massachusetts’ first and largest preservation organization, the word I most connect with our success is this: partnership. In each segment of the organization, we branched out to recruit and embrace partners internal and external, large and small, both venerable and fledgling, to continue to accomplish together the inspired and robust goals set forth in our strategic plan. It is only through these partnerships— across all organizational disciplines, from land conservation to ecology, from development to membership—that we’ve been able to move the proverbial needle so significantly in this historic year. We continued to make great strides toward our “Excite” goals. Raising our visibility by bringing our 116 properties to life was—and is—at the core of that effort. A greatly expanded menu of programs from the Berkshires to Boston went a long way in encouraging our key audiences to either visit us for the first time, or come back for repeat visits. Total visitors to Trustees properties grew by a robust 35.1%, a major increase which reflects the great time and attention our staff and volunteers gave to crafting and delivering engaging and innovative programs like the Chestnut Hill Farm CSA, the Appleton Farm Camp, and increased holiday and school vacation programming statewide. On the land conservation front, The Trustees protected or helped protect a significant 1,035 acres with the help of many state and local agencies, in addition to private donors. These collaborators include, among others: Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, MassDevelopment, Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game, the Buzzards Bay Coalition, and local land trusts and conservation commissions in Dover, Westport, and Seekonk. Our work is becoming more critical by the day, and knowing we are not alone in pursuing our mission is ever-inspiring. Our collection work statewide got a significant boost this year, thanks to the Cultural Resources Campaign, Bringing Our Stories to Life. From The Old Manse to Naumkeag, The StevensCoolidge Place to the William Cullen Bryant Homestead, our collections team was busy categorizing, counting, and conserving our incredibly diverse collections, including furniture, objects, documents, and photos. This effort included expert museum scholars, appraisers, and conservators, and required more than 1,000 volunteer hours—indeed, a true team effort. A final word about valued partnerships, as we reflect on the past fiscal year. Without the significant and enthusiastic support from you, our internal and most stalwart partners, The Trustees would not have had a chance to celebrate 125 years, let alone thrive and grow as we have this past year. With the help and guidance of our governance boards, volunteer committees, and financial supporters, we’ve made this historic year one to remember. I thank you for being our partners and champions, and look forward to continuing the collaboration into the next 125 years.

ANNUAL REPORT 2016

Financial Report The Path Forward—The Trustees five-year strategic plan, which culminates in 2018—continues to show significant progress. Fiscal Year 2016 marks the third year in the plan, and further sustains the impressive overall financial growth of recent years. This year, the continued and ongoing refinement of the approaches and tactics articulated in the plan brought growth in many funding sources, both earned and contributed, providing increased resources for the essential work of the organization. Earned revenue increases totaled 9% and were driven primarily by admission fees, permits, memberships, and enterprise activities. A continued focus on membership retention and on-site joins spurred a 4% increase in membership revenue over the previous fiscal year—a record $4.2 million for FY16—with member households up 6% to a new high of 50,000. In addition, the launch of our “Excite” program, through increased public programming and enhanced visitor experience and marketing, led to 12% growth in property revenues over the prior year. We remain focused on striking the appropriate balance between protecting the land and utilizing revenue opportunities in order to fund this protection. Contributed revenue increased by 25%, including an 11% growth of the annual fund, as well as a marked increase in restricted grants, partially supported by the Cultural Resources Campaign. The continued revenue expansion, complemented by prudent financial management, is designed to support the ambitious objectives that underpin the strategic plan. The growth in our resources has allowed us to continue to judiciously invest in capacity building, engagement staff, and technology in order to drive the connection to and usage of our reservations. Overall, our financial position remains strong, with $263 million in assets and only $6 million in liabilities. At $129 million, our endowment valuation reflects a slight investment loss for the fiscal year that is in line with our peers. The draw from the endowment has remained a steady and vital component of the revenue mix. In calculating the endowment spending, we continue to employ the hybrid model that was adopted in Fiscal 2013, designed to reduce the volatility in the annual support for operations. The Trustees has seen impressive growth again this fiscal year in large part due to key strategic investments as well as a strong staff and board that is focused on increasing awareness, visitation, and community support throughout the state. We simultaneously are committed to fiscal prudence to ensure that we are growing sustainably and responsibly. We are excited about the progress that we have made towards achieving our strategic goals and look forward to continuing to build on that momentum in the years ahead.

Saving Pegan Hill In Natick and Dover, the magnificent sweeping vistas seen from Pegan Hill are now open and available for the public to enjoy. Through significant, meaningful, and creative collaboration with our partners the Dover Land Conservation Trust, the Town of Natick, and the New England Forestry Foundation, Trustees has been able to conserve 40 acres of open space at this historic location, significantly increasing the size of the Pegan Hill Reservation. The effort included a Trustees purchase of 16 acres in Natick, and assistance to the DLCT in their purchase of a neighboring 24 acres, allowing Trustees to combine its trail systems and greatly improve the visitor experience at the site. Major gifts from the Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund, the Manton Foundation, an anonymous donor, and the Town of Natick were critical factors enabling the purchase and protection of this land. Trustees thanks these valued friends and partners for their vital contributions, as well as the numerous individuals and other foundations that provided the support necessary to make this landmark project possible.

Ecology Report At The Trustees, we prioritize and direct our ecology work toward the most significant natural landscapes. We have identified more than 80 specific priority landscapes on which to focus, totaling more than 5,600 acres. Those landscapes include a range of habitats from the Berkshires to Boston, including barrier beaches, barrens, floodplain forests and grasslands. Most require active management to maintain their habitat value, including the control of invasive plants, suppression of forest regrowth, and the facilitation of natural processes necessary for plants and animals to survive, such as prescribed fire. Here’s how last year’s work broke down, by the numbers:

At The Old Manse, a group of Winterthur furniture historians examine the Grecian Card Table prior to its restoration.

Gaining Intellectual Ground Through the Cultural Resources Campaign, Bringing Our Stories to Life, The Trustees has been able to continue our five-year statewide initiative to increase our knowledge and understanding of the collections—collections that include thousands of objects, furnishings, historic interiors, documents, and photos. The project has enabled Trustees curatorial and archival staff to pay meticulous attention to each individual piece, inventorying, processing, and archiving— physically and digitally—the collections. The effort has included a wide-ranging collaboration among museum scholars, historians, conservators, and appraisers, and has led to some very exciting conversations and a significantly deeper appreciation of our assets. Our understanding of the collections is always evolving—new scholarship and new perspectives can breathe new life into our holdings, uncovering stories that were hidden over time. Our histories are reflected in the objects around us, and The Trustees curatorial and archival team is proud and excited to share the ongoing results of this project. We are thrilled that we are now able to help bring these, and many more, Trustees stories to life.

12 THE TRUSTEES

Here’s a snapshot of just some of the conservation and preservation work done by our archivists and curators this year alone:

Documents

The Trustees’ Archives & Research Center acts as a central repository for our 125-year history. Archival collections include institutional records, legal documents of the 116 properties, family histories, and photographs. All of these materials are inventoried and stored using best archival practices. Many are scanned for digital preservation and in anticipation of an online searchable collections catalog. Some of this year’s work towards this goal included:

12,906 | Existing Collections Catalog

1,000 | Volunteer hours

2,622 | New Collections Catalog records created

251 | Pages of Trustees founder Charles Eliot’s personal scrapbook digitally scanned and conserved

1,450 | Photos scanned for digital archives

130 | Boxes of Trustees historical & stewardship records processed

records edited to meet new standards

Objects

The diversity of material type, age, provenance, and geographic location represented within our collection is quite extraordinary, and Trustees has begun a statewide inventory. More than 2,000 objects have been professionally assessed in this project so far. It is only after individual assessments that the work of properly restoring and caring for the many historically important and valuable objects begins. As part of our Cultural Resources Campaign we have been able to conserve, among others:

Grecian Card Table GRECIAN CARD TABLE, ca. 1818 Mahogany, ash, brass, iron Thomas Seymour, cabinetmaker The Trustees, The Old Manse Collection

This diamond-in-the-rough Grecian card table was covered in 200 years of grime and dust, sitting inconspicuously and anonymously in The Old Manse’s small parlor for many generations. While previously thought to be a Boston piece by an unknown artisan, consultation with furniture specialist Robert Mussey has led Trustees to now attribute the table to leading Boston cabinetmaker Thomas Seymour. Further inspection by colleagues from Winterthur Museum helped confirm its attribution and document construction details. Inscribed in pencil underneath the table is the name “Boott” which we believe refers to Kirk Boott Jr., a member of a family of wealthy merchants. Boott was involved in the textile manufacturing industry in Lowell and Waltham. Upon marrying Anna Haden, the couple settled in Boston in 1818, right about the time they likely acquired this table, and adding to the Seymour pieces they already owned. While it is speculated that the table was auctioned off in a distress sale after Boott fell on hard times, how it ended up at The Old Manse remains a mystery. While the table was in almost pristine condition, it was black from generations of dirt accumulation. We received funding from the Town of Concord through a Community Preservation Act grant to help restore this piece, and after treatment by a conservator, the original figured mahogany veneer is once again dazzling. One can easily imagine this table in the stylish new home of the Boston newlyweds nearly 200 years ago.

Thomas Jefferson Letter THOMAS JEFFERSON (1743-1826) Autograph-signed letter to his guardian, John Harvie (1706-1767), January 14, 1760 The Trustees, Appleton Family Collection

Collecting famous autographs was a fashionable hobby among the well-to-do around the turn of the 20th century, and was made even more popular by the 1876 Centennial. Patriotic Americana was all the rage, and the Appleton Collection includes a great example: 50 prints of historic scenes of America and the presidents. This bound volume of letters contains writings from every president, beginning with Washington up to Theodore Roosevelt. Some of these items were purchased, while others were personally requested by the Appletons. In his correspondence with the family, President Roosevelt states that if his informal submission is not suitable for their collection, he could send them “a more conventional ‘presidential tone’ letter.” Perhaps the most important item is the earliest known surviving document written by Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826). Jefferson aficionados thought this boyhood letter was lost more than a century ago, however the correspondence—written in 1760 when Jefferson was just 16—resides in this collection. In his letter, Jefferson tries to persuade his guardian to let him pursue further education: “…by going to the College I shall get a more universal Acquaintance, which may hereafter be serviceable to me.”

Visits to the Trustees website grew substantially in Fiscal Year 2016. While traditional connections through desktop and laptop computers went up by 15% over the previous year, it was the Trustees mobile site that saw the most significant growth—52%. This is indicative of the fact that more and more people are connecting with The Trustees while they are on the go, and perhaps even while they are at a Trustees property.

THE SEMPER VIRENS SOCIETY

Making a Statement

IN THE SAND BY JEFF HARDER

When you visit Crane Beach in Ipswich as often as Fernando Álvarez-González does, the landscape reveals all the subtleties of the seasons: footprints in the sand once the spring breeze loses its bite, piping plovers hatching at the height of summer, the half-full parking lot announcing the bittersweet arrival of autumn. “September is my favorite month at Crane Beach—it always has been,” says Álvarez-González, a 45-year-old resident of Amesbury. “It’s sad in a way because the days are shorter, but there are some sunsets that are just spectacular.” Today, Álvarez-González is a noteworthy addition to the Semper Virens Society whose planned gift was inspired by his love of Crane Beach and appreciation for the work of The Trustees. Twenty years ago, however, he was a graduate school student who’d just arrived in Massachusetts after living his entire life in northwest Spain. The temperate climate of his upbringing made harsh New England winters hard to bear— sometimes it feels like they lasted six months, he says—so he made the most of the sunshine as soon as the snow melted. “I remember my school friends telling me that Crane Beach was probably the most beautiful beach in Massachusetts,” he says. “Even before I had a car, we’d carpool there. After I got a job and my own car, I’d just drive myself.” Crane Beach was a site for simple pleasures, whether running the length of the beach and back for a workout or tromping out to a quiet spot in the sand with a chair and book. On two occasions—once at Steep Hill Beach on Crane Beach’s western edge—his sanctuary at the shore even played host to memorable company outings. Now Álvarez-González makes near-daily treks on his way home from his job at a software company in Lexington. He purchased his home in Amesbury in

part because it’s just 30 minutes from Crane Beach. Along with his proximity to the place he loves, ÁlvarezGonzález’s relationship with The Trustees has grown closer, too, and by the time he spoke with his attorney about estate planning, a planned gift to The Trustees was an easy decision to make. With no children of his own, his contribution meant that others could derive the same happiness from visiting Crane Beach that he’d experienced himself. “I know The Trustees can put that money to good use, and nothing would make me feel better than knowing whatever I have will help continue its mission,” he says. And as an architectural historian by training, ÁlvarezGonzález holds The Trustees’ historic and environmental preservation missions in high regard. “In Spain, you find high rises built within a few yards of the beach and everybody considers that normal—no one really thinks in terms of protecting those spaces,” he says. “One of the things I fell in love with in Massachusetts is that there are still places like Crane Beach that are as undeveloped as they were a century ago. We’ve been able to keep them that way, but they won’t stay that way forever unless we continue to make an effort.”

What’s Old is New Again at Crane

The design of the new Crane Beach bathhouses, by local Hamilton firm Allsopp Design, honors the simple spirit of the original structures and sits on the same footprint.

After 60 years, the Crane Beach bathhouses have been given a makeover. While the old bathhouses were a cherished part of the experience at Crane, the structures had become outdated and maintenance problematic to the point of being a losing battle. The $1.7 million investment in modern and efficient structures was one of the largest single stewardship projects in Trustees history, and (as we like to call it) the most visited of all Trustees structures, potentially the most significant! “We got a lot of feedback about wanting to keep the charm and timeless look,” says Peter Pinciaro, General Manager of the Crane Estate, so the fully accessible new bathhouses keep the exposed timber and natural pine paneling look of the old bathhouses while introducing new elements such as composting toilets to reduce water consumption by 90%, skylights, and increased capacity in the women’s bathhouse. And the updates at Crane didn’t end at the bathhouse door: additional new amenities at the beach included a retail shop and additional Snack Shack offerings, including hamburgers made from 100% grass-fed Appleton Farms beef. The completed project debuted on Memorial Day Weekend, the unofficial start of summer, to rave reviews. We know these updates go a long way in improving the Crane experience.

The Semper Virens Society Semper Virens, which means “always green,” honors and recognizes generous individuals who have made a legacy gift to The Trustees. Since the first recorded bequest in 1902, support via wills and life income gifts has built and strengthened The Trustees’ mission. This strong financial base has provided important stability, enabling The Trustees to secure important landscapes and landmarks, acquire new reservations, implement innovative stewardship, share our conservation mission, and promote ongoing protection of threatened land across the state. We are delighted to list the members of the Semper Virens Society. In making a planned gift, these individuals have turned their passion into a legacy, and set an inspiring example for others to follow.
