"Child of B. L. & M. E. Archer"

______________________________

This is a Zinc Monument made by the Monumental Bronze Company of Bridgeport, CT. These sand cast zinc grave markers were produced (sold as "White Bronze") from 1874 to 1914. The company's product is in cemeteries from coast to coast both in the United States and Canada.

The metal is nearly 100% pure. It weathers very well, and monuments made from zinc frequently look as good today as they did when they were first installed. They age better than marble, and are equal to the lasting qualities of granite. The markers were about 1/3 less expensive than an equivalent marker carved from stone.

Many of the markers have bolt-on panels so that an older monument could be kept up-to-date with newer burials. The panels themselves were made through 1939.
