In the summer of 2011, the tower at Independence Hall was bared to the bones for the first time since it was added in 1828. In a restoration project for the National Park Service (NPS), contractors bared the face level of the tower down to the structural framing. The NPS has a detailed write-up of the project, along with pictures, videos, and step-by-step pictorial guides of the process.
About Danielle Keperling
Danielle Groshong-Keperling has worked full-time in the restoration industry since 2001, but her education in the traditional trades, construction industry, and historical preservation was built from an early age through her Father's work in the traditional trades and her Mother's love of historic architecture. Now, with Jonathan (an artisan craftsman in his own right), her partner in business and life, they work together to help historic building owners restore and preserve their piece of our built history.
