CALLING ALL SKILLED PROFESSIONALS WHO HAVE EXPERIENCE WORKING ON HISTORIC BUILDINGS.

JOIN OUR

RESOURCE LIST!

CHP is often asked for assistance in finding someone who can help with repairs or renovation of an historic home or building. We are looking for individuals and companies who appreciate the vision of an original builder and who understand the challenges and rewards of preserving a historic building. To that end, CHP is creating a RESOURCE LIST of skilled professionals experienced in working on historic homes and buildings. ​

If you or someone you know would like to be on this RESOURCE LIST, please complete the application form. 

PLEASE NOTE:

This RESOURCE LIST will be shared on the CHP website and with anyone inquiring about construction services. The information will be provided as a convenience and for informational purposes only; it will not constitute an endorsement or an approval by Carthage Historic Preservation of any of the products, services or opinions of the corporation or organization or individual.
