Maintain a Historic Property

Owning an older home is a privilege and a responsibility. These architectural gems are a testament to our shared history, and with the right care, can continue to stand proudly for years to come.

Preservation Easements

An easement is a legal right that allows someone to use another person’s land for a specific purpose. It grants a non-owner a limited interest or privilege regarding the use of the land, without transferring ownership. Easements can serve as valuable tools for both developers and preservationists. Developers may use easements to facilitate access and infrastructure development, while preservationists can leverage easements to protect and conserve historically significant properties.
