Historic House Trust - New York City Historic House Trust of New York City a not-for-profi t organization was created in 1989 to preserve and promote the historic houses located in New York City parks. Working in partnership with the City of New York Parks & Recreation, the goal of the Trust is to provide new levels of attention, support and specialized care to benefi t these museums.

Each historic house offers a unique learning experience that can be connected to a particular theme or unit of instruction such as families, communities and local, state and national history.

Students focus on a specific place and how it has changed over time. They discover how families lived and worked in earlier days; trace the growth and development of their own and other communities; deepen their understanding of diverse heritages; and learn about important events and significant people in the history of our city, state and nation.

Whether you are planning to visit a historic house within walking distance of your school or thinking about a bus or subway trip to a site in another borough, the links on this web site will help you to determine which historic sites meet your instructional goals.
