Warren Lasch Conservation Center

The WLCC at the Clemson University Restoration Institute in North Charleston, SC is a facility dedicated to advancing knowledge and best practices in the study, analysis, conservation and preservation of materials and structures of historical significance. Our expertise is based on years dedicated to the investigation and stabilization of the H.L.  Hunley submarine (1864) and its associated artifacts housed at the WLCC since 2000. In 2008, a project between the National Park Service and the Warren Lasch Conservation Center of Clemson University was initiated to develop a protocol for conservation treatment on a selected set of ordnance and architectural elements at Fort Sumter National Monument.
