    Fort McHenry Visitor Center Achieves LEED Gold Certification

    The new Visitor Center at Fort McHenry National Monument & Historic Shrine has been recognized by the US Green Building Council with LEED Gold Certification. The building utilizes an energy efficient geothermal heating and cooling system, as well as numerous other measures that contribute to energy and water conservation. Materials with high recycled content were also specified, and all of the building's brick façade was constructed of surplus brick that had been manufactured in the 1990s to replicate and repair the historic Fort masonry.
