Multiple blocks with information regarding the accomplishements of the Historic House Trust. There is a picture with construction workers fixing a roof, volunteers at a house museum posing with a mannequin, students with flowers, and students learning a lesson on how to paint shutters. There is also a male cheerleader with a megaphone.

End of the Year Giving 

The Historic House Trust is so much more than a collection of houses. Our sites are beacons of their communities and portals into history. They remind us of the momentous events that shaped New York City and the passionate people who have fueled its legendary energy, from the Lenape tribes who settled the shores to you reading this letter today. We love that HHT’s 23 houses challenge us to find new and engaging ways to speak about this shared history, the changing city, the conflicts we have weathered, and the issues we struggle with today. Your donation ensures that these sites are preserved and continue to serve their communities.
