Due to the ongoing public health risk of the COVID-19 virus,  Radical Women – Blues Concert with Helen Sheldon series is postponed. Information will be posted on the Lippitt House Museum website when the series is rescheduled.

People often ask us what we do as preservation advocates...

  • We find productive, economic uses for vacant, old buildings

  • We demonstrate best practices at our historic buildings

  • We offer guidance and support to local groups defending threatened places​

  • We advocate for legislation-including historic tax credits–that revitalizes historic buildings and strengthens the economy


Small amounts accomplish a lot!

A monthly gift of $10, $20 or more makes our work possible - each and every day - and helps give great old places a vibrant future!


Yes! I want to give monthly!
