New History is dedicated to increasing the use and viability of historic buildings and sites. Our integrated team includes historians, design professionals, and consultants for historic building redevelopment - all with a depth of experience in the regulatory, financial, and physical framework of historic preservation. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, New History works with a range of clients including regional and national real estate developers, cities, counties, architecture firms, and educational institutions, among others.
