Historic Sites

 

EIA has the experience and sensitivity it takes to work with an historic structure, including facilities on
the National Register of Historic Places, the Nation's official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation.

 

 
 
 
Authorized under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Register is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect our historic and archeological resources. Properties listed in the Register include districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects that are significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture. The National Register is administered by the National Park Service, which is part of the U.S. Department of the Interior.

Queens Unified Court House


 
EIA relamped the historic New York State Unified Court System building, in Long Island City, New York; the current home to the Civil Term of the Queens Supreme Court. 

 

This 19th century building, originally illuminated with gas lamps, was retrofitted in the early 20th century to electric lighting. In this most recent update, EIA installed fresh 21st century technology, energy-conscious bulbs. The bulbs were fit into irreplaceable hand-made Art Nouveau lamps. The antique lamps were leaded stained glass structures, some up to four feet in length, which were suspended nearly forty feet up in the air by thin ornate chains.
 
 

President Teddy Roosevelt Birthplace

 
 
EIA was contracted to recable the interior of the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site. The three-story brownstone house features a mansard roof, and a high stoop above the basement. The hooded moldings above the windows and doorway are in the Gothic Revival style.

 

 
Only one U.S. president was born in New York City. Raised in a townhouse at 28 E. 20th St., Theodore Roosevelt would grow up to be our 26th President and become immortalized on Mount Rushmore. However, he started life as a sickly yet bright boy who exercised to improve his health.
