Southern Research, Historic Preservation Consultants, Inc. is a small company located in Historic Waverly Hall, Georgia with broad capabilities in the fields of archaeology, history and architectural history. It might be said that we dwell on the past because most of what we do involves studying the achievements and failures of previous cultures. It is fascinating and important work and we hope present and future generations will benefit from our efforts.

We speak the language of engineers, of city managers, of developers, of educators. Our clients are governmental, military, public, and private. We're proud of the work we do and the people on our team.

Our diverse background in historical and archaeological research makes us expert guides into the world of historic preservation and compliance with local, state, and federal laws regarding cultural resources. We can provide simple, clear answers to your questions, and we can mobilize an expert team to promptly accomplish the work to be done. On time. On budget. Right the first time.

Southern Research has, in short, grown to become one of the best qualified CRM firms in the Southeast.


As a corporation, Southern Research is serious about business. We carefully manage our projects to insure that our clients' goals, deadlines, and budgets are met.
