Granite Eagle on Vinalhaven Island, MaineOne of five granite eagles carved by Vinalhaven stone carvers for the Buffalo, NY, Post Office (c. 1898). It is now perched on the island’s Main Street, downtown.

During the summer of 1999, we toured the rugged island of Vinalhaven off the coast of Maine. We learned all about its rich history as one of the main granite sources for the architecture boom of the late 19th / early 20th century. We had been learning about this and like stories for years and finally decided that these histories deserved a wider audience. We decided right then-and-there to start-up a “digitization service” for local / regional historical organizations. Our plan was to create digital-archives of local collections and push that history online. Our goal: the preservation and presentation of history as a public trust. Kerri suggested a spot-on name that would stick “in heritage.” On August 14, we purchased our domain name, giving InHeritage a spiritual birthplace and actual birthdate … We also had created a product years ahead of its time (back when hosting plans were measured in MBs) and out-of-reach for the limited budgets of most small organizations.

Luckily, our initial marketing drive had uncovered an even greater need: website development. The call for site services was at a fever-pitch in the late ’90s, a fact no less true within the non-profit community. We came to it with a unique advantage: we placed the presentation of content at the core of our productions. We found organizations and societies that wanted solutions geared towards depth. In addition, the mentioned budgetary limitations had operations searching for solid solutions without an agency price-tag. We put aside our scanners and copy-stands, and trained our focus on “web design & development for the historical community.”

From the beginning, our clients have come in all sizes … Our initial offerings were a range of custom-development plans tied to budget-ranges: the entry-level Shaker, mid-road Craftsman and Mission—and our enterprise plan: Empire. (Yes, we are architecture fans!) These were flexible a la carte plans that could match any budget to our custom-development commitment. Key to our budget-matching ability was a talented pool of professionals and strategic partners—each hand-picked for a specific developmental role—eager to supplement our internal skill-sets … This has always been and continues to be our approach, allowing us to mix-and-match teams across the arc of funding possibilities.

We have seen technologies come-and-go. HTML 2, 3 and 4 leading to our first attempts at proprietary content-managed systems and a big bear-hug embrace of presentation applications: Flash, XML, Web 2.0, etc. But the advent of open-source CMS was more than an incremental step. It redefined our entire approach and transformed our relationships with our clients. Add to this an emphasis placed on the implementation of client services support (host-design, SEO optimization, e-marketing, etc.) and we had made the jump to “online operations for historical organizations.”

The dynamism of open-source CMS, responsive-mobile user-interface design and a broad focus on the service needs of small- to mid-sized non-profit / commercial ventures brings us to our present iteration and our primary aim: “design / build / maintain.” And though technology and standards are in continual motion and our approach continues to evolve, our central inspiration—custom development designed to showcase the presentation of content—has remained the hook on which we have proudly hung our hats since August 14, 1999 … Design • Build • Maintain • Online
