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.

A captivating summer evening nestled in the heart of Central Park at the Loeb Boathouse where we will host our Annual Founders Award Dinner to raise funds for 23 historic sites within New York City. Our two distinguished honorees, Jan Hird Pokorny Associates, and Dianne H. Pilgrim have a unique relationship to HHT. JHPA, a leading architecture firm passionate about preserving historic sites has worked on five of our house sites and Dianne H. Pilgrim one of our founding members has been a leading figure in the design field and advocate for accessibility for all abilities in museums. Mingle with our honorees and their supporters while helping to preserve New York history surrounded by the beauty of Central Park!
