Leigh Schoberth joins Historic New England's preservation services team
Schoberth is responsible for identifying key issues impacting historic preservation and developing public programs, workshops, lectures, and other outreach activities. She will provide personalized online support for old house questions for Historic New England members at the Sustainer level and up.
Schoberth will also participate in the management of Historic New England’s Preservation Easement Program by visiting private historic properties and meeting with property owners to assess conditions, provide treatment recommendations, troubleshoot maintenance issues, and review project requests. She is also responsible for maintaining a strong network among our preservation partners in the region and engaging with local agencies to respond to preservation advocacy issues at Historic New England’s public sites.
“Historic New England has been a leader in preservation since its founding in 1910,” said Schoberth. “I’m thrilled to be joining the organization and for the opportunity to bring preservation to a wider audience.”
Prior to her appointment as senior preservation services manager, Schoberth worked as the preservation policy associate for Preservation Society of Newport County and as a preservation professional for Knapp Architects. She has a BA in history from University of Michigan and an MS in historic preservation from Clemson University.
