HDC Assesses More National Cemetery Lodges

HDC continues to work with lead firm Tetra Tech on the assessment of historic national cemetery lodges for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In December 2021, Charissa Durst and Cathie Senter traveled to Brooklyn, New York, to visit the lodge at Cypress Hills National Cemetery. In 2022, Cathie traveled with Tetra Tech historic architect Leila Hamroun to the lodges at both Corinth National Cemetery in Mississippi and Glendale National Cemetery near Richmond, Virginia. A common theme during fieldwork is climbing in and out of windows!
