2015: Where We Worked

The Preservation Trust of Vermont is a statewide non-profit organization founded in 1980 whose mission is to help communities save and use historic places. Much of our focus is on strengthening downtowns, village centers, local initiatives and capacity.

What We Do


  • In 2015, led the effort in the Legislature to reinstate Historic Preservation and Barn Grants, and supported funding for the Vermont Housing and Conservation Fund, Downtown and Village Center Tax Credits, Cultural Facility Grants, and funding for the Division for Historic Preservation.
  • Partner with the Vermont Downtown Program to support revitalization efforts in designated downtowns and village centers. Co-host annual retreat for downtown managers (for 24 Designated Downtowns).
  • Host annual Historic Preservation and Downtown Conference in partnership with the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation and the Vermont Downtown Program.
  • Recognize great preservation successes through our biennial awards program.
  • Publish Vermont Restoration Directory and offer preservation resources and guidance on our website
  • Distribute free electronic newsletter
