WAR MEMORIAL


CITY OF ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA

CONDITION AND RECOMMENDATIONS

PREPARED BY HISTORIC PROPERTY ASSOCIATES

September 30, 1992


GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The monument is located in the northeast
corner of the Plaza. It is a shell-ashed stucco shaft, square in
plan, surrounded by a shell-ashed stucco curbing which is topped
with ornamental brick. The plain stuccoed tapered cap is topped
by a cannonball finial. Bronze placques honoring the dead from
the Second World War, the Korean Conflict, and the Vietnam War
are fastened to three of the four sides.

CONDITION: The monument appears to be plumb. There is no
evidence of settlement, differential or otherwise.
There is some horizontal cracking about midway up the column.
The cap has some vegatative growth in cracks.
There is some staining of the WW II tablet.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1. Remove mold and mildew with a solution in the proportions of
one (1) pint of sodium hypochlorite (household bleach), one (1)
cup of trisodium phosphate (such as Spic & Span), and one (1)
gallon of clean water. Apply with soft natural bristle brushes.
Flush with copious amounts of clean water.

2. Treat cracks in cap with herbicide and repair with an
acrylic-fortified grout. Match to original.
