Tower of Victory / Washington's State Park, Newburgh, New York

RESTORATION OF 1887 MEMORIAL ON THE HUDSON RIVER

The Tower of Victory was constructed between 1886 and 1887 on the property of the nation’s first publicly owned historic site: George Washington’s Headquarters from 1782 to 1783. The Tower of Victory was built as a memorial of the 100th anniversary of the end of the Revolutionary War. Our project consisted of reconstruction of the roof and viewing platform, which was damaged during a hurricane in the 1960’s, and complete masonry restoration and statue restoration. Easton Architects received the 2018 New York State Historic Preservation Award.
