With Heritage Histories, you own the project and we do the work. Well, we do 98% of it. The client must point us in the right direction and review and approve the work at various stages, but our clients find it to be an enjoyable and reasonably straight-forward process.
What You Can Expect From Us
Every Heritage Histories book, is exhaustively researched, elegantly written, and beautifully designed to meet your particular objectives. Heritage Histories is dedicated to keeping the process simple for the client, making it cost effective and staying on-schedule.

Our job is to help you permanently capture and preserve the history of your organization in order for it to be passed along to the various audiences who have a stake in it: customers, prospective customers, employees, suppliers, strategic partners and investors, to name a few.
Our Promise to You
The fact that your organization has sustained itself over a long period of time -- during good times and bad times, through ups and downs -- makes its story important and worthwhile. That its history was honed by a passing parade of talented individuals with their own hopes and dreams for it, makes it unique.

Our promise is to tell that story with the respect, the enthusiasm and the sensitivity it deserves. It will be a logically conceived and well written story that keeps the reader turning pages. It will be attractively designed and may include sidebars and other devices to provide entry points for readers with more or less time. Whatever the format, it will be a publication that reflects well upon the organization, and one with which you will be proud to be associated
A collection of our professionally bound books.
