The Second Bank of the United States Restoration project for NPS is now complete! Constructed between 1819-1824, the Second Bank of the United States is a National Historic Landmark, a prominent visual feature within the landscape of Independence National Historical Park and a recognized landmark within the City of Philadelphia.
As a distinguished early Greek Revival building, the Second Bank is of major historical significance and currently serves as a portrait and interpretive gallery showcasing the Park Museum Collections. The restoration included roof replacement and associated features, preservation of exterior marble walls, repair or replacement of wood windows. The project included professional art-handling and moving of the park’s museum collections, which was stored inside the museum and at a separate, secured storage facility.
Congrats to the team on the successful completion of this project!
