Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation

Established in 1975 as a non-profit organization by Special Act of the Connecticut General Assembly, the Connecticut Trust's mission is to preserve the character and ensure the vitality of Connecticut's historically significant places. Through education, advocacy, collaboration and support, the Trust assists residents and community organizations throughout the state to preserve, protect, and revitalize Connecticut's historically significant communities. Since its inception, the CTHP has addressed issues from threatened historic properties to sprawl and developed working relationships with organizations and initiatives not traditionally perceived as "preservation" including transportation policy groups, farmland preservation, planning and zoning commissioners as well as urban and rural planners. The Trust sponsors educational programs and conferences with nationally recognized planners, architects, academics and preservationists to increase public awareness of Connecticut's historic resources and the need to protect them.
