About us

The L'Enfant Trust is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization founded in 1978 to promote a public aesthetic in land use planning. The Trust creates and maintains programs to promote the beauty of Washington's urban environment. The Trust was a pioneer in the use of a unique and powerful preservation tool - the Conservation Easement. The easement is an enforceable promise, voluntarily made by a property owner and binding on all subsequent owners, that no change in the exterior appearance of a protected building will be made unless consented to by The L'Enfant Trust.
