Green-Wood staff meticulously document the restoration and preservation processes for monuments around the cemetery. Restoration can be as simple as cleaning an existing monument, uncovering a lost monument from the ground or full restoration and fabrication of broken or missing monument pieces.
Green-Wood President Richard J. Moylan picked out a few bronze mausoleum doors and plaques throughout the Cemetery for the department to work on. After a little homework and research, Morelli and the department found basic patinas for the weathered metal, then tackled the new type of project. At right are photos of some of the stunning results (click Show Info at the top for photo captions; full screen slideshow on Flickr here).
