Copp’s Hill Burying Ground Restoration Topped Off With Bird’s Head Spigot Replica

The Spring 2014 newsletter from the Historic Burying Grounds Initiative contains a update on the restoration project recently completed at Copp’s Hill Burying Ground in Boston’s North End. The restored fence on Charter Street was installed last October, but a special bird’s head spigot took extra time to be cast. The feature in the center of the burying ground was replicated using an artist’s mold designed from an old black and white photo. Before and after photos are shown in the newsletter.
