Ben Page has been passionately involved with multiple levels of landscape and historic preservation for the entire span of his professional career. Upon graduation from the University of Georgia School of Environmental Design in 1973, he went to work initially with Robert Marvin and Associates in Waterloo, South Carolina where numerous projects from the restoration of the historic Governor’s Mansion in Columbia, South Carolina to working with Charles Fraser on the development of the landscape master plan for Hilton Head Island resort were part of his responsibility. Moving back to Nashville, Tennessee in 1976 to work for the Tennessee Department of Conservation in the parks planning department provided broad career exposure to both historic landscape preservation projects (historic Carter House, building and landscape preservation project in Elizabethtown, Tennessee) and the enormously complex landscape master plans for new state parks such as 12,000 acre Fall Creek Falls State park in Crossville, Tennessee. Upon opening his own office in 1981 a consistent and clear focus for the firm has remained on projects with a historic preservation focus and a corollary commitment to environmental sensitive solutions to programmatic issues.
