PROJECT SUMMARY

Built between 1819 and 1824, The Second Bank of the United States is an example of Greek Revival architecture designed by William Strickland. The Second Bank was modeled after the Parthenon in Greece. Today, the bank is home to an extraordinary portrait gallery of revolutionary heroes and federal statesman of the 18th century.

The scope of services Stone & Lime will provide include; the replacement of the copper roof (including associated elements, such as flashings, pipe drains, gutters and downspouts), the preservation and repair of the exterior marble masonry walls (cleaning, conservation and stabilization where needed), and repointing and replacement of sashes for 51 wood windows.
