The National Trust for Historic Preservation
Lyndhurst National Historic Landmark

Lyndhurst is a cool place to spend your summer. One of the most important Hudson River estates, Lyndhurst is A. J. Davis's masterwork. With structures dating from 1838 to 1911 and a spectacular 67 acre landscape on the Hudson River, this amazing setting can be your summer home. Interns work under the NTHP Restoration Project Manager and assist in the physical preservation of this incredible National Historic Landmark site.

Historic Preservation Intern
Internship Opportunity
Tarrytown, NY
$100/week, Housing is provided

Historic Preservation BS/BA, MA/MS candidates and recent graduates of those programs may apply for one of FIVE summer intern positions at the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Lyndhurst property. This internship provides hands-on experience restoring and repairing significant historic structures, and will also have the opportunity to work with international MA/MS students from the École du Louvre Paris.

Be prepared to get your hands dirty! The internship is 35-hours per week, Monday-Thursday for a 10 week period starting Wednesday May 31st (slightly flexible on start and finish dates). Interns in 2017 will participate in restoration work at the National Landmark Gothic Revival mansion (c.1830), the operation of the oldest two lane regulation bowling alley in the United States (c.1894), work on museum displays, and other projects on-site.

Some interns will also rotate through the main office for short stints to do social media, cataloging, documentation, development, fundraising and other work vital to our operation.

Through fieldwork and field trips, students will experience the challenges and opportunities facing staff who steward these amazing historic structures for the public benefit. Previous interns have come from programs around the nation (Cornell, SCAD, RWU, MTSU, UAH, Clemson, Penn, Austin) and the world (China, India, Korea, Canada, France, Germany), and we have a VERY high success rate for interns who have gone on to other professional, colleigiate and internship positions.

One of the five available summer internship positions MAY be extended into the Fall and Winter months for the right candidate.

The internship pays a stipend of $100 per week, and comfortable housing is provided on site free of charge. You can see NYC from here, and it is easily accessible by train. You can even make this your base for interviewing for post-internship positions in New York.

We have grown this program into one of the most exciting hands-on HP internships out there- do not miss this opportunity.
