Summary

Visitors walking through the Renwick Gates in the Enid A. Haupt Garden. The elaborate wrought-iron carriage gates were set in four stone pillars made from the same sandstone used in the Smithsonian Institution Building. The design, a collaborative effort of Smithsonian historian James Goode and Office of Design and Construction architect John Blake Murphy, now retired, was adapted from a 1849 design by Castle architect James Renwick.
