We prepare for the future by remembering the past, in the same way that vacuum-sealing Halloween candy ensures a bountiful Valentine’s Day. Reflect on days of yore with today's Groupon for a membership to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a one-year family membership (a $30 value).
- For $10, you get a one-year individual membership (a $20 value).
The National Trust for Historic Preservation is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and restoring historic places throughout the country. Membership includes discounts at historic sites across America and in the Boston area, including the African Meeting House, Abiel Smith School, the Chesterwood estate in Stockbridge, Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House in Concord, and the spot where Larry Bird slam-dunked a box of English tea into the harbor.
In addition, members can get special rates at affiliated Historic Hotels of America, a collection of more than 100 historic hotels throughout the country that, like Botox and cursed hourglasses, keep the past alive. Also included is a one-year subscription to Preservation magazine that brings the past into members’ present.
