Public History

History is at the heart of heritage. At GML we believe that we all make history and that places are made by people.

To us, places are not just architecture. Our team of professional public historians unearth the records to bring new perspectives to places. We get to the heart of what places really mean through the historical lived experience. We find the facts and stories that help us know and understand our environment as part of our public history and collective memory. If you want to get beneath the surface and know the past to create today, we can help you understand the power of place, enriching strategic planning processes, design, place-making, urban renewal, and interpretation.
