From Surveys to Grant Writing to Consulting, History Matters can do it all.

Historic Contexts

History Matters creates fully researched, well-written historic contexts, which explore the cultural, political, and social past of areas as small as individual neighborhoods and as large as entire cities. Each context is specific to both the geographic area studied and the client needs, resulting in a document, which is useful and accessible to a wide audience. Our goal is to make each historic context user-friendly, engaging, informative, and entertaining.

Historic contexts, in addition to telling a story, represent excellent planning tools. History Matters creates historic contexts, which provide the necessary information to make key preservation decisions regarding survey priorities or topics in need of more in-depth study. Historic contexts also are excellent resources for public outreach, community education, and interpretive efforts.

Other firms prepare historic contexts, however, History Matters stands above the rest because of:

  • Our exceptional writing ability
  • Our client-centered focus and flexibility
  • Our commitment to creating a useful product
