Where’s General Kosciuszko?
We are pleased to report that the monument was taken to McKay Lodge Conservation Studio in Ohio on February 12, 2013—Kosciuszko’s 267th birthday—and is now being fully restored!
We have now raised not only enough funds to restore the bronze monument itself, but this summer we will also clean, tuck-point and polish its granite base and add an American flag to the site—held up by a Pole! In addition, we will add a permanent donor plaque and do some landscaping and patio work to the site. All the work will be done by the end of summer and we will rededicate the monument sometime in late August or September. Check back later for the exact date.
However, it’s never too late to donate to the cause—your name can still appear on the donor plaque with a donation of $500 or more before June 1, 2013! All remaining funds after the work is completed will be held in an endowment fund, so we can keep the monument and the entire site better maintained in the future.
Thank you for your support.
