Roof Project

A new historically accurate standing seam roof was installed in the fall of 2017.  It was generally a smooth process, with just a few hitches as contractors discovered questionable areas in the old roof.  With the spring of 2018 being a record one for rainfall we were glad to have this sturdy new roof guarding boats, the historic ballroom and locker rooms from the elements.

Porch Project

The foundation committed funds to a project to restore the iconic riverside porch of the Potomac Boat House. The project was a great success, and the foundation, together with the Potomac Boat Club, received the 2017 District of Columbia Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation for Stewardship.

Window Restoration & Weatherproofing

PRBF has committed funds to renovate, restore and weatherproof the windows and French doors in the ballroom.  As this project nears completion we have committed funds to renovate the front façade of the building.  This involves replacing rotten wood, broken shingles, power washing and painting.
