Director of Preservation, Newport Restoration Foundation (Newport, RI)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - preservation, architect, restoration
Contributed By: Maeve Sheehan
Website: https://www.newportrestoration.org/

Newport Restoration Foundation in Newport, Rhode Island is looking for an experienced and highly-skilled historic preservation practitioner to serve as its next Director of Preservation. Reporting to the Executive Director, the Director of Preservation oversees the preservation, maintenance, and protection of NRF’s historic properties and directly supervises the organization’s Operations Coordinator and Crew Foreman.

NRF was established in 1968 by preservationist, philanthropist, and collector Doris Duke, who devoted her resources to the acquisition and restoration of Colonial-era buildings in Newport. NRF owns 78 historic properties, including 70 buildings that are rented as residences. This portfolio represents one of the largest collections of period architecture owned by a single organization anywhere in the United States. The impact of NRF’s preservation work has been transformative for the city of Newport, with its earliest neighborhoods and streetscapes revitalized, public spaces created and enhanced, and the city’s tax base and economy strengthened.

The Director of Preservation oversees the preservation and protection of NRF’s historic properties. S/he will serve as the leader in the effort to ensure the long-term stewardship of NRF’s collection of houses. Of particular importance currently are conservation-level projects involving some of NRF’s most noteworthy properties, including Rough Point, the Whitehorne House Museum, Vernon House, and the Christopher Townsend House (74 Bridge Street), but the Director of Preservation provides guidance as well to NRF’s ten-person crew on the more routine work performed on our rental houses. In addition, the Director of Preservation serves on an ongoing basis as an advocate and spokesperson with regard to all preservation-related issues of interest to NRF.

For a complete job description see https://www.newportrestoration.org/2052-2

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, résumé and salary requirements to maeve@newportrestoration.org or to Human Resources, 51 Touro Street, Newport, RI 02840.  Applications accepted until Monday, February 4 2019.  EOE.
