As several have already mentioned, Brian Gream is a wonderful choice in the area of historically-sensitive remodels. He remodeled our 1923 bungalow in 2008 and did an amazing job. You can view the pictures of our house on his website at http://www.bgrontheweb.com. Ours is the "barn red" (as my wife likes to call it) bungalow.
Brian is very sensitive to your desires and has a keen eye and great judgment for what is and is not an effective (or historically accurate) remodeling choice. As Ken Lampton mentioned, ask Brian if he will tour you around his personal house. It's an amazing new build, which almost completely blurs the dividing line between remodel and new construction. Brian's email is firstname.lastname@example.org and his phone number is 214.542.6214. If you request it, Brian will often take you on a tour of some of his projects, to allow you to both meet his clients and get a feel for his remodeling style.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to call me.

Here is a list of agents on Trulia in your area:
You might find your answer by connecting with a local Realtor - often local agents are familiar with specialty contractors and should be able to provide you with a contractor(s) to consider.
Another avenue to pursue.... when I googled Lakewood for contractors I came across this site for a Lakewod Landscape Architect... It's very possible that a landscape architect would know of a contractor with the experience with historic homes you are seeking. Click to check out this site:
Charleston is abundant wtih historic homes, so I understand your need to find the right contractor ....best of luck to you!
