White Bronze
A Virtual Cemetery created by: Har37x
Description: Between 1874 and 1912 the Monumental Bronze Company of Bridgeport, CT made headstones that were meant to "weather". Made of sand cast zinc, they called them White Bronze for marketing purposes to make it more appealing to customers. The zinc carbonate gave the headstones a bluish gray color. Ionization of the metal would build in the welds to make for a sturdier hold on all joints. The Monumental Bronze Company opened other locations. Detroit Bronze opened in 1881 and closed in 1885. American Bronze operated in Chicago from 1886 to 1909. Western White Bronze Company opened in Des Moines 1886 and closed in 1908. The government took over the plant in 1914 for the manufacturing of munitions during World War I. After the war the demand for the monuments had faded however they continued to make individual panels for family members who died after the monuments were ordered. The company turned to making castings for automobiles and radios until it closed in 1939.
