Council Accepts Bids for Conservation of Historic Monuments

The City Council has authorized restoration to proceed at Soldier’s Monument & Moulton Fountain at the western junction of Main and Huguenot, as well as the World War I Memorial at the eastern junction of Main and Huguenot. These impressive monuments are historic tributes to New Rochelle residents who gave their lives on behalf of our nation, and also serve as important visual markers for entry into our central business district.

The restoration has been guided by City Historian Barbara Davis and a dedicated task force of volunteers with expertise in historic preservation matters. The work itself will be conducted by Archa Technology, a nationally-recognized conservation firm, and should both protect and enhance the appearance of these valuable public assets.
