Historic Communities

The recognition and enhancement of a historic community’s unique sense of place is an important component of any integrated economic revitalization strategy. Working with community leaders and residents, Heritage Strategies provides the vision, programming and technical assistance needed to help preserve, rehabilitate, adaptively reuse, and interpret historic resources. We understand how to accommodate change in a way that strengthens historic character, enhances quality of life, and promotes visitation and economic vitality.
