Historic Estate Research Services
Historic Estate Research will thoroughly document the history of your property through in-depth research in local and national archives, as well as interviews with people knowledgeable about the property. We will examine and photograph the historic structures within a property, paying particular attention to significant architectural or historic details. If available, plans, drawings and historic photographs of the property will be obtained. We can work with the owners to provide floor plans identifying important historic features. Historic Estate Research works closely with owners to capitalize on the history and architecture of a property to protect it and possibly increase its value.
Our basic historic research products consist of a color flyer which highlights the history and architecture of the property, and a bound, in-depth study which thoroughly documents and illustrates the property and its buildings. Both products and all photographs will also be provided in electronic form for future use.
Other services offered by Historic Estate Research include:
(1) completion of National Register of Historic Places or state/local register nomination forms; and
(2) completion of Level II or III HABS/HAER/HALS documentation.
Prices for Historic Estate Research services are individually determined based on the nature and extent of the property to be documented, as well as the level of services desired.
