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!

Happy 100th Birthday to the National Parks Service! HistoriCorps is proud to have partnered with and served some of our beautiful parks - most recently we teamed up with Joshua Tree National Park. Which ones have you visited?
National Park Foundation
Happy 100th birthday, National Park Service! On this day in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson created the agency that would be responsible for preserving our nation's inheritance. Today, it cares for the over 400 unique natural, cultural, and historical national park units across the country. Thank you to the women and men of NPS who help safeguard our heritage and share the many stories that make up our national narrative. Here's to kicking off the second century together! http://prks.org/1pbOyNm #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #NPS100
