Memorial Hall Spire Restoration
Cambridge, Massachusetts

When the original spire was built atop Memorial Hall in 1874, it was a tribute to Union soldiers who died during the Civil War. The spire was destroyed by fire in 1956, and remained as a frustum of its former self for nearly 50 years. This project restored the spire to its original height – and pride – approximately 100 feet above the roof where it remains overseeing Harvard’s campus to this day
