Easement Benefits

Georgetowners who are dedicated to historic preservation are encouraged to contribute Conservation Easements to the Foundation. These scenic, open space and architectural façade easements will go far to stabilize the historic townscape so that the vibrant living community of Georgetown can reflect visually its historic landmark status.  The donor may also be eligible for significant tax benefits. 

A Conservation Easement deeded to the Foundation ensures the preservation of part of the Historic District’s townscape. The Foundation will encourage especially Conservation Easements on properties with large open spaces that might, in less friendly hands, be subject to development.
