The Preservation Research Office (PRO) is an independent public architectural history and historic preservation company. We can be detectives, storytellers, builders and advocates. Our projects draw people not only to better steward and appreciate historic architecture, but also to recognize the inherent social capital of places and buildings.
PRO offers a full range of preservation services that can suit single buildings or entire neighborhoods. Among our larger projects have been surveys, historic district designations and public history projects in distressed neighborhoods that often have more vacant lots than buildings ? but still tell important stories. Identifying, interpreting and preserving modern architecture is another strong focus of our work. We serve clients, and we undertake our own public projects.
