The Entrance Arch
(after the hurricane but before the restoration)

Accident or storm caused damage to ornamental ironwork is sometimes the conclusive causitive factor
that leads to the restoration of historic ornamental ironwork.

The historic cast and wrought iron fence at the Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria Virginia
had slowly been losing the decorative spears on its cemetery fence (see before photo below).

However it was a hurricane crushing the wrought entry arch that prompted the full scale
restoration and expansion of the entire cemetery fence.

The accompanying photos show different aspects of this 2005 restoration.

Before restoration, virtually every spear point had been broken off.

 

 

After restoration, the original spears are back.

We used ductile iron on these to prevent future breakage.
