The U.S. National Park Service oversees a wide variety of historic buildings and structures. In this presentation, the restoration and preservation of two NPS sites will be discussed: the historic B & O railroad train station in Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, West Virginia; and the World War 2 era artillery range finding tower Battery 234 CRF/BCS in Gulf Islands National Seashore, Florida. In addition to the approaches taken to restore these structures, the challenges posed by site specific conditions, past alterations, environmental circumstances and construction costs, and the effects these issues had on one project’s outcome, will also be presented.

Presentation Objectives

• Review the methods used for wood, steel, concrete and foundation structural repairs.

• Examine the effects of past alterations on restoration approaches.

• Explore the effects of site conditions, environmental circumstances, and construction costs on structural repair approaches and project outcomes.

Eddie Foy is a structural engineer at GWWO Architects in Baltimore, MD. For the past 25 years he has worked on wide-ranging historic preservation and restoration projects for the National Park Service.
