Library Cupola Restored

This week, the historic cupola of the Georgetown Public Library was finished and installed by HRGH Corp. The original cupola was destroyed in the 2007 fire:

The restored cupola is identical to the original. See if you can tell the difference:

It looks like there are just a few differences. The old one (one the left) had a bit more of a curve to the roof and was topped with slate. The new one has a bit more of a rounded off top and is covered in copper. Additionally the vents are painted green. Also, the new dormers look about six inches wider around each window.

All in all, a pretty great restoration job. It will surely heighten the anticipation for the reopening of the library, which is on schedule for September.

    The roof will develop the green patina and eventually match the green painted vents. Right now it creates a pretty dazzling reflection visible all the way up Wisconsin.
