In 1910, William Sumner Appleton founded the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities. Today, the organization is known as Historic New England and it operates a range of historic properties throughout the region. The homepage offers nine primary sections, including Events and Programs, Publications, Preservation, and Collections, Archives, and Exhibitions. The first area is a great place to learn about the many lectures, architectural seminars, and preservation information sessions Historic New England sponsors. The Preservation area contains some fine white papers on different aspects of preservation, along with preservation plans for various holdings. It's worth noting that the white papers cover over a dozen topics, including site drainage, energy efficiency, and mechanical systems. The Publications area is well worth a look, as it contains access to eighty issues of "Old-Time New England Journal," which features articles on collections and historic properties in the region. Finally, the Collections, Archives, and Exhibitions area contains wonderful exhibits such as Wallpaper at Historic New England and 100 Years of Aviation at Plum Island.
