Glavé & Holmes was built on the foundation of preserving important architecture and restoring historic structures. We are pleased to be growing our presence in the historic preservation market with projects like the Restoration of Montalto in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the Alexander Black House and Cultural Center in Blacksburg, Virginia. With a desire to expand our talented preservation team, we are thrilled to welcome Gibson Worsham to G&HA as a member of the Cultural Studio and a historic preservation specialist for the firm.


Gibson has more than 35 years of experience in historic preservation, historic research, and new traditional architecture. He earned his Bachelors of Architecture from Virginia Tech and Masters in Architectural History from the University of Virginia. He contributes years of practice in the management of historic preservation tax credit projects, historic building surveys, and National Register nominations.

Toward the beginning of his career, Gibson worked in the State Historic Preservation Office of Kentucky as the State Historic Architect, gaining a thorough working knowledge of the Historic Tax Credit process and the Secretary of the Interior Standards for Historic Preservation Projects. After gaining more experience, he owned his own practice for 22 years and was most recently associated with StudioAmmons Architects as director of historical architecture. Gibson’s passion for preservation and architectural history is evident in his work on many significant projects including the Restoration of Solitude House at Virginia Tech, the Restoration of Waterford Mill, St. John’s Church, the Goochland Courthouse Green and Goochland County Jail, and projects at Colonial Williamsburg. His experience ranges from master planning to commercial and civic projects, as well as high-end residential.

Gibson is a valuable addition to our firm and will help us to expand our historic preservation services tremendously. We are excited about the opportunity to bolster our expertise and pursue more of these types of projects.”
