This fund supports the preservation of historic memorials.
Cedar Hill Cemetery features monuments made of brownstone, marble, granite, bronze, and zinc. Environmental conditions take a toll on these materials. Issues due to exposure to airborne particulates and organic matter can occur.
Bronzes suffer from corrosion, pitting, and etched drip patterns. Marbles are soiled, marred by gypsum deposits, and exhibit minor cracks or material losses.
These issues are not uncommon for outdoor sculptures, But this weathering is visually disfiguring and physically damaging.
