As a researcher in both art and architectural history, David Ruell brings an uncommon depth of understanding to his work. He has worked with many agencies and property owners in the region, particularly in New Hampshire, to record and research numerous historic buildings and structures, from whole villages and downtown districts to individual houses, churches, town halls, libraries, schools, commercial buildings and bridges.

David Ruell has successfully prepared over sixty nominations to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
