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!

californiaWE NEED YOUR HELP!

Our beloved work truck, “Bertha”, has been stolen! Yup. She is gone. She is a 2007 F250 diesel with an extended cab and 8 foot bed. There appears to be no chance of recovery, and the season is right around the corner. As much as we loved her, we cannot wait for her to return and need to replace her! If you have a truck of equivalent power and size you want to sell or donate, know of a truck for sale, know a friend or family member who is cycling out a fleet truck, or can otherwise connect HistoriCorps with a replacement truck, please contact Towny at 720-390-6089 or tanderson@historicorps.org.

Remember the saying, “Have truck, will travel?” Well, we are ready to travel, but we need a truck! Any leads or offers are much appreciated! Thank you from all of us at HistoriCorps. P.S. We will give you naming rights!

Looking for a last minute adventure in Sedona, Arizona? There are still 2 volunteer spots open to preserve Crescent Moon Cabin May 4-9. The structure is a rustic, historic ranch house adjacent to Oak Creek and near the base of the towering Cathedral Rock, one of the most photographed scenes in the Southwest. Volunteers have the opportunity to sleep inside the cabin for the project!
