Programs > Preservation Easements

Properties come into the Division of Historical Resources’ Preservation Easement Program to protect the public’s investment in or stewardship responsibilities for historic resources. Like the more commonly known conservation easements that primarily protect the natural, open space, or agricultural character of a parcel of land, a preservation easement primarily protects the historic characteristics of a property that convey its historic significance, which may include both built and natural elements.


Stewardship and Caring for Your Historic Property

Here you can find links to everything from the National Park Service’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties and Guidelines, the go-to compilation of historic preservation philosophy and guidance and their accompanying technical assistance bulletins and briefs, to sources for local consultants and contractors.


Easement Program Information for Property Owners

Here you can discover more about DHR’s program, and find guidance and resources to productively and efficiently work with the DHR in meeting easement requirements.
