The Historic House Trust

is a non-profit organization operating in tandem with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. Our mission is to provide essential support for houses of architectural and cultural significance, spanning 350 years of New York City life. These treasures reside within city parks and are open to the public.

We are excited to announce that HHT has partnered with Archtober to celebrate all things architecture in the month of October! Five of our member houses will be hosting architecture based tours during the month.

Our 2017 Founders Award Dinner was held on June 5th at the Loeb Boathouse in Central Park. It was a picture-perfect evening with our HHT supporters who came out to dine and mingle with our two distinguished honorees, Jan Hird Pokorny Associates,
