Rediscover NYC with the Historic House Trust!

Welcome Home. The Historic House Trust invites you to rediscover the delights New York City has to offer.

With a membership to the Historic House Trust you have the freedom to journey across all five boroughs in search of new adventures. With unlimited free admission to the historic house museums in our collection, New York City is your oyster! And make sure to check out our new membership benefits, including special members-only tours, invitations to our 30th anniversary lecture series, and more.

Keep Exploring. You have likely taken in the spectacular views from the top of the Empire State Building, paid tribute to the lovely Lady Liberty, and sampled Frank Sinatra's favorite slice. But what New Yorker stops there? Reclaim your status as an urban adventurer by spending a day at one of the extraordinary sites in the Historic House Trust's collection. This year we're making it easy for you by creating travel guides to these sites and the vibrant, diverse neighborhoods that surround them. These guides will be sent to members throughout the year!
