The first phase of a multi-year project to restore our Egyptian Revival Gateway focused on the Cemetery’s cast iron fence and gates that flank either side of the granite structure.  Cassidy Bros. Forge, Inc., specialists in fine wrought ironwork, removed the historic iron fence and finished a complete restoration at their Cassidy Brothers’ shop in Rowley, MA. The restored fence and auto gates were returned in the spring of 2016. Peter Cassidy will share the techniques and innovative tools used for this unique and challenging restoration project. Meet at Story Chapel; bring a brown bag lunch.

Peter Cassidy is the Vice President of Cassidy Bros. Forge
