Civil War Era Monument in Delavan
Badger Contracting Inc of S WI is proud to have helped restore this 1869 historical, marble Civil War monument for The Delavan Historical Society. We moved the monument in order to replace the crumbling slab foundation. In addition to donating a portion of our services to the project, our company constructed new sidewalks, landscaped the area and installed benches and plaques. A worthy project! Our company takes great care with all our projects. Read the press release below.
Beginning Monday October 2nd, 2013 The Civil War monument restoration will begin in Spring Grove cemetery. The restoration committee approved Mel Virrueta, President of Badger Contracting Inc of S. WI to stabilize and move the monument while pouring new foundations and sidewalks. The process is estimated to take 4 weeks to restore our local landmark. Dedicated to the casualties of Delavan in the Civil War 143 years ago, the monument has been in need of recent repairs. This commemorates the 150 anniversary of the Civil War. Chairman Ken Wargo began this project 2 years ago and more information is available at www.delavanmonument.com.
