Historic New England protects regional history sprinkled throughout five states, with 36 historic sites dating back to the 17th century, touring educational exhibits, and after-school enhancement programs. Members explore the colonial crannies of Cogswell’s Grant in Essex or navigate the stony spires and diminishing peaks of Beauport in Gloucester, home to one of America’s first interior designers and his once-posh collection of embroidered bricks. Additionally, more than 400,000 images await perusal with the organization’s library and archival collection, which welcomes members looking to fuel personal research or their book-eating robot.

Funds help maintain the pristine properties and to fuel their kindergarten through 12th grade outreach programs which enhance educations hands-on experience with preserved materials and the ghosts of former groundskeepers.

Customer Reviews

I hadn't heard of Historic New England before seeing the Groupon offering. After reading about it and researching on their website, I knew it would be a great opportunity for our family to explore local New England historical sites, something we already love to do. We very much enjoyed our membership. Would love to see another Groupon, as it's been several years since our membership expired.
