Mark Wolfe practiced law in Oregon for several years before moving to Vermont to get a Masters Degree in Historic Preservation. He worked for the City of Deadwood, South Dakota as City Planner and Historic Preservation Officer for six years, and then moved to Colorado where he spent twelve years managing the State Historical Fund, the nation’s largest state-based general grants program for historic preservation. For nine of those years he also served as Colorado’s Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer. He relocated to Austin in August of 2008 to take his current position, and since that time has traveled in and through over 200 Texas counties, with plans to see the others as soon as possible. He has published several articles on historic preservation including recent contributions to a new book on the history of the Lincoln Highway.
