A modern website update for a nonprofit dedicated to preserving Pensacola's historic homes

The North Hill Preservation District in Pensacola, Florida, is recognized on the National Registry of Historic Places and is filled with a treasure trove of architecturally diverse homes.

The North Hill Preservation Association was formed to help protect the district and promote the ongoing preservation efforts needed to maintain these beautiful homes and public spaces. When the NHPA approached CleverOgre to update their aging website, we jumped at the opportunity to work with them.

Stunning photography, interesting historical facts about our hometown, and a busy schedule for the non-profit required a thoughtful partnership and careful planning.

We worked closely with the NHPA board to understand their needs and wants.

In addition to improving and expanding the functionality their previous website lacked, the NHPA board wanted a design that highlighted their modern approach to preserving history. Working with the board’s extensive library of historic documents and beautiful photography, we designed a site that looked to the future while embracing the past.

To create a site that unified these elements, CleverOgre provided the following services:

  • Original WordPress theme design and custom website development
  • Customized graphics and photo manipulation
  • Engaging typography and mobile-friendly layouts
  • Content refinement and editing
  • Optimization of foundational SEO
  • Managed hosting and website maintenance
  • Website update and editing training

The new North Hill Preservation Association website captures the art and beauty of the historic neighborhood with high-tech, custom features and a stunning design.
