About the Trust

The Trust for Architectural Easements is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that strives to be a leading force in the protection of America’s architectural heritage. We accomplish this goal by promoting voluntary preservation through easement donations and education about historic preservation and architectural history. The Trust currently serves areas in New England and Middle and South Atlantic states including Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts, and the New York City metropolitan area including historic districts in Connecticut and New Jersey.

The Trust has accepted more than 825 easement donations and maintains a Stewardship Fund greater than $8 million ensuring the Trust’s ability to honor its commitment to the public to protect the architectural integrity of these buildings in perpetuity.
