We preserve historic communities.

The mission of Capitol Historic Trust is the preservation of historic communities.

The Capitol Historic Trust is dedicated to the preservation of our architectural heritage in the areas in and surrounding our nation’s capital. We are a not-for-profit organization founded to encourage historic property owners to permanently protect their historic properties while enjoying a tax incentive.

The Trust favors the voluntary preservation enabled by the Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentive Program enacted by Congress. The pragmatic approach of the Program allows preservation efforts to effectively coexist with the full social and economic use of historic properties.
