The application deadline is March 15th; don’t wait to apply!

The Three Decker Digital Tour internship is for a student interested in the subjects of architectural history, photography and digitization, public history, technology in education, and blog and social media posting.

The intern will work with the Study Center Manager to undertake a support project for Historic New England’s Three-Decker Initiative, an initiative to build visibility for and create a region-wide emphasis on worker housing, specifically three-deckers. The project will be primarily housed at Historic New England’s Study Center at the Eustis Estate in Milton, Mass. and the Otis House in Boston, Mass. The intern will complete an integrated project in which they will transition primary source material on three-deckers into digital records, blogs, social media posts, and a final digital tour to help increase public awareness of three-deckers and their role in providing housing for workers and immigrants.

Historic New England is the oldest and largest regional heritage organization in the nation. They save and share New England’s past to engage and inform present and future generations. They engage diverse audiences in developing a deeper understanding and enjoyment of New England home life by being the national leader in collecting, preserving, and using significant buildings, landscapes, archives, stories, and objects from the past to today.
