Update: August 2015

Cyrus Farnsworth Family Obelisk

This very old marker has been recently braced to prevent it from toppling over. As you can see from the following photos, it has been a slow but steady tilt over the years.


Taken in  Autumn 1997.  It has already been leaning for some time.


Taken in June 2008, 11 years later.  You can see how much the stones have slid out of place.

Taken in June of 2015, only 7 years later, the stones have moved much more and are in danger of falling to the ground.

On August 10, 2015, Site Director, Ken Brummel, set braces to keep the obelisk from going over. Until the funds can be raised to repair this, the bracing will stay.  It will cost about $700.00 for this stone to be leveled and secure again.
