Woodland Cemetery & Arboretum

Project Location:
Durable Restoration performed emergency repairs to the concrete base that surrounds the Matilda Stanley monument and restored the monument's concrete walkway.


The restoration of this monument was completed from January through May 2019. Matilda Stanley, Gypsy Queen of the U.S., was royally buried at Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum in 1878. It is exceedingly rare that royalty would be buried here, but here she rests with a newly restored monument.  In October 2015, it became apparent that the monument was not level and beginning to sink. Durable Restoration was brought in to make emergency repairs, which included a new concrete base around the cemetery monument and concrete walkway.
