I remember this monument from when i was a kid, it needed help 20 years ago. I'm sorry to hear after leaving Worcester that the city hasen't done anything aout fixing it up yet.
If this is the monument at Park & Highland the city had been refurbishing it for quite some time. I believe it was last winter when the makeshift wooden building built around it collapsed in a winter storm. I'm not sure where it's at now though.

As I currently know, the monument is once again located at the corner of Highland Street and Park Ave.
There is actually a restoration project of this monument going on and it's currently places in the original location with scaffolding surrounding it.

I believe this monument is back up at the corner abutting Elm Park and Dorherty High School (as of July 28th 2003) it is fenced in and there are two interesting new large (bronze?) Statues the city seems to be installing.

Currently, there are plans to restore the limestone base of this monument (called the Rogers-Kennedy Memorial) which has deteriorated over the years. I think that the City is applying for grants and there is some private fundraising underway. While the statue (a man and woman pioneer) was in storage at the airport, the limestone base remained at the original locaton at the corner of Park Avenue and Highland Street, covered by a wooden structure for many years until a heavy snow storm collapsed it. Recently, (2003) the statue was erected at the site and placed on a concrete next to the limestone base.

I remember this statue/monument. I use to climb it when I was a kid. I hope it has been restored - it was/is beautiful.
This monument is now up and currently back at its original location across from Elm Park. It's been up I think now for a year or two.
As of June, 2006, they have just finished the restoration and there is a budget for maintaining it (go figure), it's back at the corner of Highland and Park Ave.

I wish someone would add or complete a web site for researching Worcester City History as my cousin Steve Clark & I have for Grafton! This site could be integrated into to your very good start. Dick in MD

The stone in the statue/monument is form of lime stone, and acid rain did it's thing in 30 years. As a kid in the 1950's I climbing the faces to get on top we often found many loose/broken piece. We had to be carefull of each step when we weighed 80 pounds or so.
