Cemetery Gates follow-up 

The Clarion Content posted a story last week on the restoration of two 8-foot high, solid bronze gates to the Washington-Duke Mausoleum in Maplewood Cemetery by Liberty Arts sculptor, Mike Waller. The Durham Herald-Sun and columnist Cliff Bellamy caught wind and did a fabulous piece on the restoration and installation.

Bellamy notes that Waller has been working on the restoration for about five months, much of the time researching how the original gates looked. The Herald Sun got some great photos last week when the team swung the nearly 400 lbs gates back into place, drilling into the granite doorway to fasten a metal frame for the gates.

Check out the photos and read the whole piece here.
