Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer looking for tips and best practices, or a home owner looking for an experienced preservation contractor, the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance is here to help you with your old house. We realize that antique home ownership comes with many questions on how to care for your home, where to turn for advice and where to find old house materials and supplies. The Alliance strives to be your go-to resource to get answers and information.
Our Old House Program offers lectures, workshops and tours to support old house stewards and enthusiasts in their efforts to maintain and preserve NH’s architectural heritage. Our educational programs focus on topics such as dating your historic home, preserving your wood windows and weatherizing your older home.
