Harvard University, Memorial Hall

Cambridge, MA

Harvard’s Memorial Hall (Ware & Van Brunt, 1870) is considered one of the foremost examples of the Ruskinian Gothic style in the United States. During a comprehensive restoration by the University, EverGreene conserved and reinstated the historic decorative painting and wood finishes in the dining hall, center hall, and Sanders Theater, including: the conservation of original distemper decorative painting and stenciling; the stripping, instaining, and refinishing of southern yellow pine, oak, and walnut woods; and the cleaning of marble memorial plaques.
