Resident Curators. This week, the majority of the Home & Garden section is devoted to the growing resident curator programs in the North East. Nothing Down, $0 a Month, Hammer Required features three historic buildings and their resident curators. By living in old and cherished state-owned houses and taking on all the restoration responsibilities, these families often live in lieu of paying rent or taxes.

  • At Home in a Tavern. Richard and Hedy Stewart (and their daughter Hattie) restoring the 1820s Buck Tavern in Bear, Delaware.

  • From an 1890s Renovation to an 1860s One. Darrold Endres, Janet Fritz, and their three daughters restoring the Litchfield House in Massachusetts.

  • Early 1800s Farm Life in Maryland, but Grander. T.J. and Gale Johnson restoring an 1815 farmhouse in Annapolis, Maryland.

  • Got what it takes to be a resident curator? Windows (if Any) Are Eager to Sparkle lists available properties in the North East and contact information.
