Architectural Legacy Services

Policyholders have exclusive access to our Architectural Legacy Services, a team of risk management specialists with expertise in historic preservation and architectural history. We can advise on loss prevention, documentation, or reconstruction and renovation projects specific to your unique historic home. To address the unique characteristics of residences built prior to 1945, we can add historic home coverage to your policy.

Coverage highlights

Consulting Services

You can be reimbursed for using approved consultants with expertise in historic preservation to advise on ways to rebuild or restore your residence after a loss.

Breakage of fragile items

Additional coverage is provided for breakage of fragile items, such as antiques, china and crystal.


This coverage can help preserve your historic setting and provides additional compensation for a wide variety of landscaping components.

Tax credit

If your home is no longer eligible for a tax credit due to a loss, you can be reimbursed1 for the actual reduction in tax credit (for one tax year).

Employment Crisis Fund™

Often owners of historic residences have additional private staff exposures, such as employing people to conduct tours of the property. For high-profile incidents related to an employee claim of wrongful termination, sexual harassment or discrimination, funds2 are available to cover the fees of a public relations firm to help minimize damage to your reputation.

In addition to superior coverage, we employ a team of specialists with expertise in historic preservation and architectural history. Look to us for complimentary advice on loss prevention and documentation, or help with rebuilding and renovation projects3.
