Vocabulary Word of the Week: Keystone

By Posted in - Preservation on June 14th, 2017 0 Comments

Located at the apex of an arch is a keystone. 

A keystone “locks” the arch into place and ensures its ability to be load bearing. Depending on the construction of a building, the keystone may be load bearing or decorative. The keystones above will be removed from the structure and utilized as a part of our VF Corporation Storytelling project.

Toast your ice-cream to keystones!
