Adaptive Reuse of a Historic DC Landmark


maybe I’m the only one, but this historic structure always caught my eye on the corner of 17th and Constitution NW DC. It was once the Lockkeepers House “built in 1837 as the toll house for the C&O Canal Extension, linking the Washington City Canal with the C&O Canal.” — it was moved earlier this month, and will soon be used as a “visitor’s information center and digital exhibition about the history of the National Mall” — Part of a larger redevelopment plan called the “Constitution Gardens Revitalization Project” (source: wamu.org, dc.curbed.com) || #adaptivereuse #revitalization #industrialhistory #transportationhistory #lockkeepers #dchistory #historicpreservation #nationalregister #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces #museumexhibit #museumexhibition #architecturalhistory #publichistory
