Stark Park monument is made whole to volunteers' delight
The cleanup and restoration of the riverside park has been going on for years. The latest attention has been on the fenced off plot where Stark was buried in 1822.
Friends of Stark Park raised the money to restore wrought iron fencing around the plot where Stark and several family members were laid to rest. The stone monument to Stark himself is marred with chips taken as souvenirs before the fence went up early in the 20th century.
Tom Burrington, a vice president with the Vermont company Rock of Ages, which carved the replacement urn, dropped by Friday to take pictures of the final product.
He said the company used old pictures to come up with the scale and proportions for the new urn.
