Overview

President Lincoln's Cottage is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP), located in Washington, DC and is a National Historic Landmark and a National Monument. The NTHP recently completed a $15M project including restoration of the historic building and the construction of an education center. The site is accessible and has LEED certification on some of the buildings. John Evans, from RMJM architects, will discuss the challenges the design team faced updating the building while preserving its integrity.
