The Historic House Trust of New York City

In partnership with NYC Parks, the Historic House Trust advocates for, promotes, and provides expertise to preserve 23 publicly owned historic sites located throughout the city’s five boroughs. Learn more about our sites!

To ensure the safety of our visitors and staff and to support the City’s effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, all 23 historic sites in the Historic House Trust collection are temporarily closed to the public until further notice. As we continue to monitor developments surrounding COVID-19, we hope that you are staying healthy and safe. While practicing social distancing, we invite you to conquer cabin fever by getting fresh air in your local park. Located within parkland in all five boroughs, the historic sites in our collection are comforting reminders of our City’s resilience right at our doorsteps.


What’s Happening at the Houses?

While our houses remain closed due to COVID-19, they are still providing quality digital content and events! We are introducing HHT Online, a one-stop-shop for all HHT house activities. Use this platform to peruse virtual house tours, historic cooking demonstrations, kids activities, educational tools, and more! It will be continuously updated, so check back regularly for new offerings. We look forward to welcoming you back in person to all 23 of our historic sites when it is safe to do so.
