Trades Internship

HSFF's an annual trades internship is a 10-week internship offered to qualified student or recent graduate of architecture, planning, design, or a similar field to gain hands-on experience in the theory and practice of preservation by working with Foundation board members and staff. The staff does a call for applications in the early part of each year, usually with a deadline of March with the internship beginning in June.

The Properties

 Historic Santa Fe Foundation (HSFF) is an organization that has contributed to the preservation and knowledge of the city since its founding in 1961. We own and maintain properties in Santa Fe, hold historic preservation easements, and research and recognize properties and resources for the HSFF Register of Properties Worthy of Preservation. Many of these resources or properties are publicly noted with the plaques mounted on the properties bearing the HSFF Register designation. Look for them when walking around Santa Fe.

Help Us Preserve & Educate

Historic Santa Fe Foundation performs an important function in the city by preserving our shared historic heritage through the structures that make our city an iconic location. We give the context to the buildings and monuments by connecting them to some of the people who helped to create and preserve Santa Fe in years past. We hope you will join us in this mission as a member, volunteer, business partner or Steward. Find out how to help and participate on our Join & Give page.
