The museum and education center features 23 galleries and theatres, which allow guests to learn about the history of our 1st President, George Washington. Rugo’s involvement included furnishing and installing all the stone flooring, walls, and staircases. We also provided all of the stone engravings, which features many locations of hand-cut “V” groove letters, and a significant sized donor wall.
The donor wall was engraved on-site with a combination of hand-cut “V” groove cursive letters and hundreds of donor names. This on-site mobilization was extremely challenging as the finished wall needed to be impeccably accurate for alignment and letter kerning. As such, this project has received the 2007 WBC craftsmanship award for interior stone.
