Newly restored lockkeeper's house opens

As of Tuesday, October 23, 2018 the oldest structure on the National Mall, the 1835 Lockkeeper's House, opens at an official ribbon cutting ceremony, becoming a welcoming sentinel to the visitors of our Nation's Capital and Constitution Gardens.

As the Preservation Architect for the Lockkeeper's House project, Davis Buckley Architects and Planners worked with the Trust for the National Mall on the relocation and adaptive reuse of the House, part of the Phase I Rehabilitation of Constitution Gardens, designed by PWP Landscape Architecture. Once vacation and deteriorated, the Lockkeeper's House has been restored and re-purposed as an interpretive space for the historic C&O Canal and National Mall history.
