1911 train station at Lake Hopatcong in Landing, New Jersey. Black paint had to be physically removed. Multiple cracked, broken, and missing parts of the terracotta trim needed to be restored.
The building was cast in place with concrete, and slots were cast into the building to receive the terracotta trim pieces.
In the rear of the station facing the tracks, half of the units were missing or damaged. They were originally made by Rookwood.
Decades of water ingress and misdirection caused much damage, staining, and degredation to the concrete and terracotta.
Replacement units were made in studio using Edison Coatings restoration mortars.
Where spalling occurred, re-profiling was done. Unless too compromised, all remaining terracotta units were repaired and restored.
The historical Lake Hopatcong Train Station was purchased in the fall of 2014 by the Lake Hopatcong Foundation and now houses their offices as well as an Environmental and Cultural Center, hosting meetings and community programming.
