DOI Library Park Ranger Speaker Series – “Lincoln Reconstructed – The Role of Historic Preservation in Reclaiming Abraham Lincoln’s Washington” – Tuesday, January 16th, 1:00 pm

From the FEDLIB listsev

Hi Everyone –

Please join us for the next in our regular monthly series of free Department of the Interior Library Park Ranger Speaker Series lectures, entitled “Lincoln Reconstructed – The Role of Historic Preservation in Reclaiming Abraham Lincoln’s Washington” on Tuesday, January 16th from 1:00 – 1:45 pm in Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building’s Rachel Carson Room.

The urban fabric of Washington, DC is dramatically different today than it was on April 21, 1865 when President Lincoln’s funeral train left the District for his final return to Springfield, Illinois. Over the last 150 years many of the buildings and sites that were part of Lincoln’s experience as a Congressman and then President have been lost, modified or moved. The sesquicentennial of the end of the Civil War in 2015 generated interest in sites that could help interpret the activities and events that took place in Washington during that dramatic five-year period. Projects that utilized the full range of historic preservation treatments from preservation to reconstruction have been utilized to reclaim sites and act as tools in the interpretation and understanding of Lincoln, the Civil War and life in the 1860s.

Please join Matt Chalifoux, Senior Historic Preservation Architect at EYP Architecture & Engineering, for a presentation focusing on five sites: Fords Theater, Lincoln Cottage, Grant Hall, Washington Navy Yard Watch Box and Fort Stevens. Mr. Chalifoux will review their history and the historic preservation projects that have been undertaken to reclaim and reposition them for a contemporary audience. These projects illustrate the role historic preservation architects play in developing the philosophical approach and technical solutions that help safeguard sites for future generations.

All that are interested are invited.  The Rachel Carson Room is located in the basement level of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building, towards the back of and adjacent to the Interior Department cafeteria.  The Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building is located at 1849 C Street, NW in Washington.  Space for the program is limited so please go to the following link to register:
