About Us: Restoration Philosophy 

r1The Landmark Trust USA (LTUSA) is a tax-exempt, non profit corporation established in 1991 to carry on historic preservation work in America according to the model established by the Landmark Trust UK. We identify neglected properties of architectural and historical merit and then restore them using traditional skills and methods. Rescued buildings are then sustained as “living history” by making them available year-round as vacation rentals for those seeking inspiring places to stay.

The properties selected for restoration are submitted to an evaluation process that investigates and ascertains historical importance, structural integrity, market appeal, cultural relevance, and durability. Once cleared through that process a financial analysis determines viability of adding the property to the existing LTUSA mix, and then finally a business plan is developed that will drive success of the investments.

LTUSA now owns properties built between 1800 and the 1930’s all of which have been fully restored, fully furnished and kitchens thoroughly equipped. These properties are very comfortable for short-term holiday rentals and offer every guest the chance to live as the original owners did, to feel the artisanship of the time and to read from the ample supply of literature provided. Every effort has been made to offer you a cultural vacation in a property surrounded by the natural environment. Call 802-254-6868 or email info@landmarktrustusa.org for more information.
