Historic preservation BS/BA, MA/MS candidates and recent graduates may apply for an additional summer intern position at the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Lyndhurst property. This internship position provides hands-on experience restoring and repairing significant historic structuresr, and will also have the opportunity to work with international MA/MS students from the École du Louvre Paris. The internship is 35-hours per week, Monday-Thursday for a 10 week period starting June 1st (slightly flexible on start and finish dates). Interns in 2015 will primarily focus on the restoration of the oldest two lane, regulation bowling alley in the United States (c.1894), with additional work on other structures on-site.
Through fieldwork and field trips, students will experience the challenges and opportunities facing staff who steward these amazing historic structures for the public benefit.

One internship position this summer MAY be extended into the Fall and Winter months for the right candidate.
