What's the Difference Between a
Colonial and a Cottage-Style Home?

Our historic resources staff can tell you! Our team of highly-certified historic resources professionals are experts in everything from barns to bungalows. They take a look at anything above-ground and make sure that we preserve our historical buildings, bridges, railroads, and ruins for future generations.


Literature and Background Research

Under each project, our team examines all previous surveys related to the project area to write a context for the development of a survey area. To simplify and expedite this task, our experts use their knowledge of research sources, archival research procedures, and architectural history to compile accurate and clear reports.

Dedicated Staff

TerraX has a team of four outstanding Architectural Historians, each of whom is uniquely equipped to evaluate and document built resources across all regions in which we work. From small barns to entire historic districts, from railroads to canals, TerraX's Architectural Historians are prepared to investigate, evaluate, and document the rich historic resources of our region.
