Olde Mohawk has provided historic preservation consulting and contracting services for over one hundred structures throughout New York and the New England states including several dozen on the National Register of Historic Places.

As active participants in the preservation community we are appreciative of the limited resources available for the preservation and maintenance of the cultural heritage embodied in historic structures. We endeavor to provide historically appropriate, sensitive, creative, and responsible solutions to the stewards of these treasures.

It is the goal of Olde Mohawk Historic Preservation, its owner, employees and consultants, to provide prompt, competent, ethical, thorough, and appropriate services to its clients. Anything less than attainment of this goal is unacceptable. All practices and methodologies employed are in strict compliance with guidelines set forth by the Secretary of the Interior.
