Monument Rehabilitation Project — Pennsylvania
This monument was constructed in 1889 of rough hewn and smooth granite. A lightning strike caused extensive damage. Portions of the monument blew off and stones weighing several thousand pounds were displaced as much as 4”.
Houck’s restoration craftsmen meticulously disassembled the upper portion of the monument before beginning repair work. After returning all stones to their original positions, Houck repointed, repaired and cleaned the monument.
