Menokin Glass House Project

The Glass House Project, a historic restoration to replace the missing half of Menokin House with structural glass, thereby protecting and augmenting the ruins of this National Historic Landmark and former home of Francis Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.

The Menokin Glass House Project is a contemporary historic rehabilitation project to save a 18th century National Historic Landmark in a new and exciting way. We are stabilizing the ruin with a visionary design replacing the missing parts of the ruin including the walls, floors and roof with structural glass. We hope to integrate the human stories of this landscape to actively advance education and scholarship through the study of architecture, the building trades, archaeology and environmental conservation.
