Jason L. Harpe established Harpe Consulting in 2008 to offer professional historic preservation and museum services to non-profit organizations, historic preservation commissions, local governments, religious institutions, families, and individuals.  His nearly twenty years of experience in the historic preservation and museum field has uniquely equipped us to manage projects of all sizes and scopes, from a $1,000,000.000 restoration project to a $7,000 grassroots fund-raising effort to restore a Depression-era Post Office mural.

Harpe Consulting takes a “hands-on” approach to both museum and historic preservation projects that builds a strong and sustainable bond where our clients understand that our interest extends beyond the timeline of our projects to a long-term relationship.  We are interested in seeing our recommendations come to fruition, and we have the ability to contribute “sweat equity” that will help build social capital around the stated goals.  Positive publicity and public perception surrounding well-structured and organized projects have the capacity to gain support from potential audiences that will strengthen public trust in the community.  Our interests include not only helping you build stronger ties with your current list of contributors and advocates, but also assisting you with the development of relationships with potential audiences that hold a wide variety of talents, resources, and assets.
