This First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry Armory is home to the oldest active US military unit in continuous service. This 113 year-old building still serves as an active National Guard Armory and is listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places.
A fire in 2010 caused heavy smoke and water damage to the five-story head house. While the fire was contained to a few rooms, smoke and water damage spread throughout the building.
Tevebaugh Architecture helped to complete the restoration of the Armory, which included removing damaged walls, flooring, windows, and ceilings. The restoration necessitated a historic review while keeping the Armory partially active during construction.
