Work Produced with GDA

In 2021, Zachary worked with Lisa Dall’Olio, AIA to produce a 10-year resurvey of the Town of Bath Historic District in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. His role included co-writing the survey report, filling out Historic Property Inventory Forms, taking photographs, producing maps using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and producing GIS data using QGIS. This survey has been published by the West Virginia State Historic Preservation Office.

Note: Though Zachary was a member of the Town of Bath Historic Landmarks Commission during this time, he only worked on and contributed to this project from GDA’s role.
