Preserving and protecting Vermont’s essential character through historic preservation and community revitalization

Historic preservation is at the core of our work and we know that something special happens when we use it to strengthen the social fabric of Vermont communities. For more than forty years, PTV has been working at saving buildings in each corner of Vermont and every town in between. We help communities keep gathering places alive and encourage the vitality of our downtowns and village centers while retaining the integrity of the surrounding rural landscape.

The Preservation Trust of Vermont accepts on-line donations to our General Fund, targeted programs, memorial gifts and more.

Alternatively, you may send a check payable to the Preservation Trust of Vermont to our office at 90 Main Street, Suite 304, Montpelier, VT 05602.

Pictured above is Irene Minkoff who with her sister and brother-in-law generously donated the Masonic Temple at Fox Hill in Poultney to PTV. This photo was taken on the day of the property transfer. For more information about why they made this gift, read her words here:
