EVENTS WITH PRESERVATION BURLINGTON

As part of Preservation Burlington's mission, we provide occasional Home Repair Workshops, Open Houses, Holiday Tours and Garden Tours in different historic homes & buildings to show you the basics of owning an older home. We love these homes for their character, and now you can learn the beauty of restoring them yourselves!

Workshops are free for our members and event tickets are available at a discounted member-only rate. You can become a member at any event or workshop, or sign up online in the "Shop" section of our website.

Past Events with Preservation Burlington

Salvage Operation Workdays

Occasionally, we have requests to salvage architectural items from homes. These homes and buildings are either about to undergo a renovation, or are slated for demolition. We do our best to save these items from the landfill and make them available for future owners to put to good use.
