Inside construction at the Washington National Cathedral.

Four years ago, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake shook our region and caused millions in damage. Particularly hard hit were two of DC’s best known structures: the Washington Monument and the Washington National Cathedral. We speak with those involved in repairing the damage and a photographer who was able to shoot extraordinary images during the process.


  • James Shepherd Architect; Director, Preservation and Facilities, Washington National Cathedral
