Cenotaph Restoration & Preservation

The process of restoration and conservation will occur onsite, in the Plaza in a protected but visible environment.

The safest way to restore the Cenotaph is by carefully and expertly disassembling it piece-by-piece, allowing for the conservation of the individual stone elements and for repairs to address both exposed and potentially concealed damage, cracked stones, damaged anchors or spalled concrete. Without ever leaving Alamo Plaza, a team of engineers and materials scientists will clean, restore and conserve the marble and granite stones in an area protected, but visible to the public. The scientific process of conservation is a detailed, fascinating and critical one, but saving the Cenotaph will be a transparent process allowing the general public to view every step.
