Vermonters and visitors alike care about our historic resources. Volunteers, craftspeople, businesses, organizations, and agencies work to identify, restore, preserve, and utilize these resources. All are essential partners in Vermont’s preservation movement.

Vermont's 250th Anniversary Commission

The 250th Anniversary Commission was created to plan, coordinate and promote observances and activities that commemorate the historic events associated with the American Revolution in Vermont.

Historic Preservation Partners

State and National partners exhibit among Vermont’s historical and preservation-related groups, all working to benefit our shared heritage. Although fairly extensive, the list is not comprehensive. Please assist us as we continue to grow our network of partners. 

Vermont Advisory Council on Historic Preservation

The Vermont Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) serves as the State Review Board as required by the National Historic Preservation Act. ACHP reviews and approve nominations to the State and National Registers of Historic Places, assesses survey documentation for historic properties, makes recommendations on projects seeking state and federal grant funding, and reviews state and federal undertakings that may affect historic properties. 

Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs   

The Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs (VCNAA) is a nine-member commission, appointed by the Governor. The VCNAA is charged with recognizing the historic and cultural contributions of Native Americans in Vermont, protecting and strengthening Native American heritage, and addressing needs in state policy, programs, and actions. 

VCNAA must meet at least six times a year. Public attendance and participation are welcome.
