ARI staff have been involved in a number of preservation planning projects. Most recently, we led a team that developed a resource management plan for Historic Resources on Route 66 in Oklahoma for the National Park Service and the Oklahoma State Historic Preservation Office. Other projects include the Portage National Historic Landmark in Cook County, Illinois for the US Army Corps of Engineers, and the Friendship Farm Landscape for the PGA Tour and the John Deere Corporation in Moline, Illinois. Our internet access to state databases allows us to access records and information on Historic Sites and develop a management plan that best serves the needs of our client.
