HHT is a not-for-profit organization that works in tandem with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation to provide support for services and programs that preserve, maintain, and assist in the general operations of the 23 historic house sites owned by New York City. To learn more about HHT’s role in the City process, take a look at our NYC Parks Terms Demystified guide.

HHT’s Capital Team

HHT’s Capital Team is made up of two divisions: Capital Projects and Maintenance & Operations. Both divisions consist of historic preservation professionals that provide the necessary expertise to facilitate the stewardship of the 23 historic sites under their care.

Capital Projects

Since 1989, over $100,000,000 in capital funding has been allocated to preserve HHT’s partner sites. HHT’s Capital Team annually inspects all 23 historic house sites, prioritizes their greatest preservation needs, and advocates for funding allocations from NYC Parks and elected officials.

Maintenance & Operations

A key component to the survival of historic structures is proper maintenance. HHT’s Capital Team is responsible for coordinating all routine and emergency maintenance, facilitating contracts with outside service providers, and managing expense funds and license agreements.
