INTREPID HISTORICAL SERVICES (IHS) offers many services to help educate, inform, enhance, designate and protect your historical place - be it your home, business, museum, farm, village, township, or county. This historical consulting is available in Chillicothe, Ross County, and south-central Ohio
An educational slide show can highlight any aspect of the heritage of your place, or illustrate the overall trends that shaped its history and architecture.
The story of the persons, public records and physical elements of your building reveal many aspects of its history. This research can also serve as a foundation for a National Register Nomination.
A guide to entice residents and visitors to understand and appreciate your area's history and architecture can go a long way in strengthening respect and interest in your community, and promoting business.
If your building or place is eligible, I can nominate it to the National Register. A listing is prestigious and can allow tax benefits for income-producing properties and preservation legislation for communities.
