Historic Home Easements

Preserving Heritage for Future Generations

Through DHR's Easement program, property owners can voluntarily safeguard the historical, architectural, and archaeological integrity of their properties by instituting a permanent preservation easement. This easement imposes limitations on future property development, prohibits certain activities, and mandates prior approval for others. While retaining ownership, usage, and control of the land, the landowner agrees to uphold these restrictions, ensuring the preservation of the property's heritage for future generations.
