USNA Gate II
Gate II is one of the original wrought iron gates that access the grounds of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis MD. They consist of a central vehicular pair of leaves flanked by pedestrian walks. The ironwork had deteriorated over a century of use and modifications. EverGreene conservators joined with Citadel DCA to assess the condition of the ironwork and provide recommendations for restoration. The gates were documented, conditions studied, and a treatment plan developed that included directions for disassembly, recreation of missing elements, repair to remaining historic parts, re-coating and re-installation.
