2008: Researching Land Use History
Lawyers representing a major mining company engage History Associates to document the complex history of metal mining, milling, and smelting operations in a western river watershed. Having collaborated with History Associates on several previous projects, the attorneys entrust a team of more than a dozen historians to conduct research at repositories across the country. The team reviews over 85,000 documents, compiles thirty-two site histories capturing more than a century of industrial and environmental history, and offers testimony detailing the company’s thorough and professional methodology. Since then, this client and many others have returned to History Associates for exceptional work that delivers real value.
