It was a moment of tragedy for our institution and remains so today. A truck crashed into our historic building, killing one person and destroying multiple brownstone columns that had adorned our building since its opening, 122 years prior. As the Director of the Conway Public Library, I knew we needed to find a firm to run the repair process who possessed an understanding of, and sensitivity to, the unique characteristics of working on a historic structure such as ours, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Barba + Wheelock is that firm and I can not recommend them highly enough. They have been a “rock steady” partner and have displayed a high level of professionalism and expertise to their craft. Liz Reynolds has been a great partner for our project. Her background fit our needs perfectly and she has displayed great work habits. I recommend Liz and B+W in general without reservation.
