Become a member and discover NYC with the Historic House Trust!

HHT's historic houses are rare survivors in our development driven city and serve as origin anchors for their neighborhoods. They are surprising to discover, wedged amongst the urban street wall or serenely tucked into large forested parks. These landmarks await you with their stories of survival and I invite you to take the Historic House Trust Challenge and visit all 23*. Each house has its own unique story to tell and in true New York fashion--an equally fascinating neighborhood to discover. With an HHT membership you'll have an all-access pass to start exploring the city.

As an HHT member, you will be given free admission* to our member houses throughout the year! The membership funds will enable HHT to continue to provide support to the 23 historic properties in its collection for essential maintenance, preservation and capacity building projects. Advocating for the historic houses as a unified collection, HHT strives to provide programs, services and community engagement initiatives that strengthen each house individually and equally benefit the houses as a whole.
