VA Historic Property Highlights - Superintendent's Lodge

read caption below photograph

Montgomery C. Meigs developed a prototype for superintendents’ lodges at national cemeteries in 1870. The design was for a 1 ½ story Second Empire style house with a small front porch. Several of these lodges still exist at national cemeteries, including Richmond National Cemetery, Keokok National Cemetery and Port Hudson National Cemetery. Today some of these function as the administrative offices for the cemeteries.
