Introducing Washington National Cathedral

July 20, 2012 by Nell Ziehl

I’m Nell Ziehl, the National Trust's project manager for Washington National Cathedral. I’ll be providing you regular updates as we work with the National Cathedral to raise awareness and funding for its restoration following the 2011 earthquake that rocked the nation’s capital.

This week, I’m pleased to announce that the National Trust awarded $5,000 through its Preservation Fund to help the National Cathedral conduct a seismic study with Columbia University and the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory. The study will help us understand what threats exist to the National Cathedral from future seismic activity, and what steps can be taken to reinforce the building as part of its restoration.

From coast to coast, fascinating historic places are waiting for you to visit and explore.
