Binney Monument Conservation: Laser Cleaning

In 1999, the Amos Binney monument, the only realized funerary sculpture by noted American sculptor Thomas Crawford ( c.1813-1857) was designated an “American Treasure” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the White House Millennium Committee chaired by Hillary Rodham Clinton.   The monument serves as a landmark in the development of American commemorative sculpture and one of the most sophisticated and complex funerary monuments in America.
