Our Approach

Communities come to Cornerstones for assistance with historic preservation projects. Communities remain the project leader even when we’re actively working on the project. We are involved as an assistant or consultant throughout the project. We provide only the help the community needs such as technical assistance, gathering materials, tools, or equipment, fundraising assistance, and organizing volunteer days.

We believe in having as much of the community as possible involved during the project. The communities provide people to fill paid positions such as interns, architects, carpenters, and more. On volunteer days, community residents have the chance to work directly on buildings. A successful project is one the community supports long-term.
