Welcome to HistoriCorps

We are a nonprofit organization that provides volunteers, students and veterans of all skill levels with a hands-on experience preserving historic structures on public lands across America. Volunteers and students work with HistoriCorps field staff to learn preservation skills and put those skills to work saving historic places that have fallen into disrepair.

HistoriCorps works to ensure America’s cultural and historical sites exist for generations to come. Join us on a project!
