Karstendiek Tomb Restoration Update

front facade

We are pleased to announce that the restoration of the Karstendiek Tomb is well underway. Due to your support, Irish Channel Iron Works has been working with us in order to restore this very important example of cast iron tomb architecture. All of the major areas of rust have been treated and are in the final stages of being repaired. The areas of concern on the roof, where water was entering, is currently being addressed and a water-tight welded barrier is being built up in order to ensure against future water damage. Once all repairs are complete on the bodies of the four facades the decorative eternal flame cornice will be restored using infill of new casts made from the originals.
