Berkshire Athenaeum - Stone Number 1,516

p

Allegrone Masonry raises and lays the 1,516th and final stone into place at the historic Berkshire Athenaeum building in Pittsfield's Park Squre.

Scaffolding has concealed the exterior of the Berkshire Athenaeum building for several months as Allegrone Masonry has worked carefully and diligently to repair the deteriorated stone facade.  The existing stone wall was labelled, inventoried, disassembled, and reinstalled from July 15, 2014 through October 25, 2014.  In this time, Allegrone Masonry laid 1,516 stones and placed by hand 123 yards of vertical, one sided, structurally reinforced concrete.

Scaffolding will be removed this week, returning the historic building as a focal point of Park Square!  Work will continue elsewhere within the building through Spring 2015.
