Stones gathered for use in the construction of four stone pillars, made from the same red sandstone used for the Smithsonian Institution Building, as a setting for wrought-iron carriage gates based on the design by Castle architect James Renwick Jr. in 1849. These gates are now known as the Renwick Gates.
