Historic buildings are a prominent link to our past. Many of those who own, or are responsible for, restoring and maintaining our architectural heritage understand the value of preserving an old building’s architectural character.

The intent of this web site is to provide resources for those seeking information to repair, restore, preserve and maintain their historic homes or other architectural treasures.
