Historic Preservation

Robert and Company understands it is important to preserve and enhance America’s irreplaceable historic heritage as a matter of public interest and general welfare so that its vital legacy will be maintained and enriched for present and future generations. Robert and Company believes that identifying and preserving historic sites and districts is a vital part of the historic preservation movement, and essential in protecting America’s heritage for future generations. In response to this commitment, Robert and Company offers a variety of historic preservation and design services including general historic preservation consultation, architectural/landscape site documentation, historic district guideline development, master planning for historic landscapes/gardens, preservation planning, design and restoration services, and historic district ordinance and property designation preparation. In projects that deal with issues such as these, Robert and Company develops solutions that ensure integrity of the historic site/district. We believe that historical resources provide continuity with our past and enhance our quality of life.

Over the last decade, historic preservation has evolved beyond the protection of a single structure or district to include the identification, documentation, and preservation of historic and cultural sites with local, regional, and national significance. Cultural landscapes are recognized today as an important component of our history, and through their form, features, and identity, greatly enrich our lives. They reveal much about our relationship with the natural and built environments and the way we understand and interpret our past. As a participant in the expanding field of cultural landscape preservation, Robert and Company’s Preservation Studio provides a broad range of services to a variety of clients.
