About The Trustees of Reservations

Founded in 1891 by Charles Eliot, a protégé of well-known landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted,
The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) is the nation’s oldest conservation and historic preservation
organization. Eliot’s belief in the connection between the natural and cultural led him to envision an
organization that connected people to place, and art to nature—a blended balance inspired by the past
and fueled by innovation, creativity, and new ideas. With a mission to “preserve, for public use and
enjoyment, properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value in Massachusetts,” The
Trustees has worked for 130 years to conserve the natural, cultural, and historic character that makes
Massachusetts unique. To that end, The Trustees owns and manages 123 diverse properties across the
state, spanning more than 27,000 acres—from working farms, landscaped and urban gardens, and
parks, to barrier beaches, forests, campgrounds, inns and a dozen historic houses.
