Exterior Façade Restoration Project
Reduced 3rd Street Parking | Temporary Garden Closure
The Folger’s exterior façade is undergoing restoration (June 2018 through fall 2019). The soft Georgia marble used in the construction of the Folger 85 years ago—and many other Washington-area buildings—is showing signs of severe weathering. By restoring the façade now we are preserving our landmark building for generations of future visitors.
