  • Because Monocacy Battlefield and Thomas Farm are major national resources of the Civil War, we appreciated the professionalism and care that was exercised in conducting the Library of Congress HABS photography of the site.  Using GPS/GIS to map out the photo locations was novel and will be of great use 100 years from now!

  • Thank you for all the hard work in getting us the American Battlefield Protection Program Grant.  Without your dedication and interest, this state resource would never have received the recognition it deserves as a Revolutionary War site.

  • A job well done on our downtown building survey and Main Street work.  The team was fast and professional.  The fact that all of the work perfectly fit with our GIS planning and systems was invaluable for planning and development.  We are looking forward to the same quality of work on the COPC project.

  • Working with you and your team for the last couple years has been a real blast!  I don't even know what project to start with, the Meeting House, the Fort, or the historic buildings at the Park.  And so much we learned from your presentations and training on all of this.  Who would have guessed that we have the oldest log barn in Kentucky hidden right under our noses!

  • I can't imagine what we would have done without all of your support and work for the Foundation and this incredible national history resource.  The feasibility study will help us plan for our future to interpret the Fort, and the National Park Service ABPP grant you wrote will guide us in conserving and managing this Revolutionary War site.

  • The Cumberlands Corridor Tourism Marketing Feasibility Study is nothing short of remarkable.  The depth is so much more than we ever expected.  It gives our partners great insight into the dynamics of the five county region--and solutions to improve all types of visitation to this part of the state.  We are looking forward to the training's for each of the county tourism boards.

  • The Oxmoor conservation study is a masterpiece. It will assist us going many years into the future to understand and conserve this tremendous asset to the history of Louisville and the Ohio Valley.

  • Your expertise and report quickly helped us understand the National Register considerations of our Dollywood interstate exchange project—and move the project onward without complications.  Thank you for your efforts, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
