Trust for Architectural Easements

Mission

The mission of the Trust for Architectural Easements is to preserve America’s architectural heritage.  We accomplish this mission primarily through the acceptance and stewardship of historic preservation easements.  The Trust is one of the largest preservation easement holding organizations in the country, with protected properties in eight states.

Community

In addition, the Trust supports community efforts to recognize historic properties and districts through listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The Trust also provides grants to other non-profit organizations for bricks-and-mortar preservation projects and educational initiatives on topics related to American architecture and architectural history.
