About Heritage Preservation Resources
Joe Gallagher, owner of Heritage Preservation Resources, Incorporated, has been working on historic structures for over three decades. He was employed by the U.S. Forest Service for 30+ years and is comfortable in backcountry and wilderness settings. Educated in archaeology and historic preservation, he continues to learn from and interact with other log structure conservationists, as well as experts in related fields.
While an employee of the U.S. Forest Service, Joe restored dozens of historic structures. As his experience and reputation grew, so did requests for his services. Now “retired”, his clients include government and municipal agencies, non-profit organizations, and individual cabin owners. When additional help is needed on projects, Joe engages the specialized skills of a cadre of highly experienced craftspeople from across the U.S.
Heritage Preservation Resources works primarily, but not exclusively, on historic log and frame buildings. The company looks for opportunities to extend the life of 19th and early 20th century structures. Buildings constructed or used by emigrants, pioneers, slaves, the CCC, and WPA are of special interest, as are fortifications and mining structures. Buildings in remote locations are a specialty. Work can be accomplished when power equipment cannot be used.
Conserving the heritage of this country is a critical need. America loses evidence of its past daily. Heritage Preservation Resources provides services through out the country. Non-profits, historical societies, community organizations, and state and federal agencies are given special attention. Heritage Preservation Resources’ motto is:
“Interesting buildings in interesting places with interesting people.”
