Louisville Water Company shows off restored Crescent Hill Gatehouse
Louisville Water Company showed off its fully restored historic Crescent Hill Gatehouse on Tuesday.
Work began in 2013. The building's slate roof was completely replaced and the 3,000 tiles in the terra cotta ceiling were cleaned and restored. The limestone steps leading up to the gatehouse and reservoir were also cleaned and repaired.
The three-story Gothic structure was designed to resemble a castle along the Rhine River in Germany.
The gatehouse was designated a Kentucky Historic Site in 2010.
