Museums, Houses, & Gardens
From the tracks of dinosaurs and the settlements of Mohicans to the stone walls of colonial farmers, The Trustees of Reservations care for and share an incredible array of places and things that illuminate who we were, who we are now, and who we will be. Our historic houses range from the Colonial Era to the Modern Movement, include five National Historic Landmarks, and represent a preserved timeline of architecture and design over the past 300 years. Our museums feature thought-provoking artwork from a variety of genres in settings from which creativity emanates and senses are inflamed, while our various gardens serve as geometric wonders, horticultural masterpieces, and hubs that unify communities.
