Soldiers' & Sailors' Monument
Welcome to Cuyahoga County's Civil War Monument
Notice of Commission Meeting
What is Going on Out There!?!
You may be asking what is happening outside the Monument this Summer. It is a cleaning technique called a nebulous sprayer.
What's happening is soft water is continuously sprayed on the Monument drawing the contaminants out of the stone and allowing us to clean the surface for a fresh clean look.
This is a very slow process and will take all Summer to complete. At the same time we are taking out the old caulking on our steps and walkways and resealing the entire upper esplanade. This will include some patch work and will keep the water our of our basement for about 5 to 10 years.
