Melissa West, founder and president of The Tradesmen Group, Inc. has a passion for preservation, restoration and rehabilitation of our country’s great historic buildings. These time-honored structures are representative of who we are as individuals, communities and as a country. Restoring and preserving our historic buildings renews life in tangible elements of our history that transcend time. Built with ingenuity, hard work and dedication by our ancestors, these structures are a link to our past and what defines us today as a culture and a people.
Whether it is your grandfather’s old house, the school you attended as a child, the university hall where you met your spouse, the church where you were married, or the hospital where your children were born, we all find our lives intertwined with great historic buildings of our past. It is our responsibility to care for and maintain our historic structures to the highest standards possible so that generations to come can enjoy, marvel at, and benefit from our incredible historic buildings.
