Property Donations and Preservation Easements

Owners of historic property have several options to ensure its historic character is maintained.  Whether via an outright donation to Preservation Durham, creating a life estate, or including a preservation easement or covenant as part of the sale of your property, we can help you ensure the long-term preservation of your property’s historic integrity.  Learn more about your preservation options here.


Volunteers are critical to the work of Preservation Durham!  We need people with all sorts of skills and expertise. Check out how you can get involved here or email us!
