Website New History

New History is dedicated to increasing the use and viability of historic buildings and sites. Our integrated team includes historians, design professionals, and consultants for historic building redevelopment - all with a depth of experience in the regulatory, financial, and physical framework of historic preservation. Based in Minneapolis, MN, New History works with a range of clients including regional and national real estate developers, cities, counties, architecture firms, and educational institutions, among others. We believe that buildings embody stories that tell us where we come from and who we are. We leverage this history for the sustainable reuse of our built environment, which is why we regard use as the best form of preservation.

An Architect is expected to bring the following expertise to our team and clients:

  • Design for Reuse: Ability to collaborate with clients and project teams to develop conceptual design solutions for building reuse that meet project requirements and historic preservation regulations.
  • Historical Architecture: Knowledge of historic materials and features and experience with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties (“the Standards”).
    Historic Tax Credits: Experience with state and federal historic tax credits.
  • Building Assessments: Expertise in historic materials surveys and condition assessments, documentation of existing conditions, and development of prioritized recommendations for repair.
  • Construction Administration: Working knowledge of project delivery, construction administration processes, and compliance with historic preservation approvals during construction.
  • Consulting and Project Management: Client service, project communication, and execution of project strategies, including collaboration with team, clients, reviewing agencies, and stakeholders.
  • Business Development: Active participation in client relationships and business development.
  • NCPE Internships: Eligibility & How to Apply


    All NCPE interns received an hourly stipend, the rate is listed at each position description. Additionally, interns receive paid time off (PTO), paid Federal holidays if working full-time, and access to NCPE's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for career and personal counseling, coaching, and referrals. Project sites may also offer a housing allowance and/or commuting stipend; this information is also listed in the description or offered during the interview.

    Eligible NCPE interns who successfully complete their internships may count their position towards earning a Public Land Corps (PLC) Non-Competitive Hiring Authority certificate. To be eligible to earn a PLC certificate, an intern must be 30 years old or younger (or 35 if a veteran). Once earned, the PLC hiring authority certificate may be used to apply for eligible Federal temporary, term, or permanent positions. Successful completion of a NCPE internship does not guarantee Federal employment. Contact for more details.


    To be eligible, applicants must be at least 18 years old, currently enrolled in a degree-seeking academic program at the college level (or recently graduated within the past 12 months), and be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident. Interns are not eligible to work more than 1200 hours total in the program; previous interns must stay within this overall limit. The length of an internship can vary from 10 to 30 weeks if full time (40 hours per week) or longer if on a part-time schedule. If selected, the exact starting date will be determined by you and the NPS supervisor. The stipend rate is $17.00 per hour unless otherwise listed.

    The successful candidate is responsible for finding and paying for travel to and housing at the internship location; some exceptions apply. The supervising office may be able to assist in locating housing but it is ultimately up to the individual accepting the internship to find accommodation.

    The National Council requires all interns working in-person at Federal facilities and/or with Federal employees receive the Covid-19 vaccination. Please be advised that you may also be required to wear a mask, depending on the protocols adopted by your work site. Also be aware that, due to Government-wide security requirements, a background check will be required if you are selected for a position. This will include providing information about recent housing and employment history. The position supervisor will have more information about these requirements and procedures at the time of hiring. You may direct any questions to NCPE's Internship Program Director, Julee Johnson, at

    Please note that interns are not NCPE or NPS employees. Stipends are academic awards and taxes are not withheld, nor are social security contributions made on your behalf. These funds may be taxable, however, so consult a tax preparation professional if you have questions.
