Historic New England saves and shares New England’s past to engage and inform present and future generations. We engage diverse audiences in developing a deeper understanding and enjoyment of New England home life by being the national leader in collecting, preserving, and using significant buildings, landscapes, archives, stories, and objects from the past to today. The New England experience is powerful, personal, and diverse, and it provides a compelling and enduring framework for sustainability and resilience as we consider and navigate the dynamic changes and possibilities affecting the region in the years ahead. Historic New England provides an unparalleled resource for learning and discovering about New England, through its museums, farms, landscapes, collections, easement program, and education initiatives, spanning all six states.
