Trust for Architectural Easements Promotes Historic Preservation in Greenwich, Connecticut


The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentive Program: Protecting America’s Architectural Treasures Through Voluntary Preservation Wednesday, May 19, 2010 7:00 p.m. Greenwich Library 101 West Putnam Avenue Greenwich, CT 06830

Greenwich, CT, March 27, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Trust for Architectural Easements protects more than 800 historic properties in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia. An easement is a critical but underutilized tool that promotes sustainable development practices and protects America’s historic buildings.

Thanks to continued interest in the Trust for Architectural Easements and the Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentive Program, the Trust has scheduled a Greenwich, CT seminar for May 19, 2010. The seminar will explain how protecting a historic structure benefits the community and can also result in a federal income tax deduction. The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentive Program gives historic-property owners who agree to preserve the exterior of their properties a financial incentive for historic preservation efforts.

To be eligible, the property must be individually listed in the National Register of Historic Places or the property must be in a registered historic district that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and certified as contributing to the historic district by the National Park Service. More than 2,500 historic properties in Connecticut qualify.

“The National Register of Historic Places is the federal program that provides public recognition of our nation’s historic resources, whether architectural, cultural, or archaeological,” said Steve McClain, president of the Trust for Architectural Easements.
