General Preservation Services

Projects derived at the local and state level are the backbone of the preservation movement. The pride that homeowners and non-profit groups bring to their preservation projects is exciting and sometimes challenging. We regularly work with private preservation practitioners to reach their goals, knowing that these kinds of undertakings are often done within fiscal and time limitations and varying community opinions. Let Dovetail help with your preservation project, large or small, ranging from archival research and architectural studies on historic buildings to completing National Register of Historic Places nominations to performing archaeological studies.  Dovetail can also design historical signage and educational materials to highlight the significant heritage of any area.

Our preservation services include, but are not limited to:
