 About Sacred Sites Weekend

Since 2011 congregations throughout New York State have been invited to open their doors for the New York Landmarks Conservancy's Sacred Sites Open House so neighbors and tourists can experience first-hand the wonderful art, architecture and history of our state's religious sites. Visitors can also learn about the crucial social and cultural programming these magnificent religious institutions provide their communities.

The annual Sacred Sites Open House has three objectives:

  • To encourage sacred sites to open their doors to the general public. Inviting visitors is a great way to build broad community support for the ongoing preservation of historic institutions.
  • To inspire residents to be tourists in their own town, introducing non-members to the history, art and architecture embodied in sacred places. New Yorkers tour religious sites around the world but may overlook those in their own back yard. Developing cultural tourism is key to the future of sacred sites.
  • To publicize the many programs and services religious institutions offer their neighbors. The important work these sites provide benefits the entire community – not just the congregation’s members- and help ensure the congregation’s future.
