Located at the intersection of Penn Avenue and Butler Street, the statue serves as an iconic entryway into the Lawrenceville neighborhood. After the statue was vandalized last year, Lisa Ceoffe, whose parents spent decades tending and maintaining the monument, realized it was the statue’s centennial and spearheaded a plan to revitalize the monument by cleaning the statue, landscaping the area and lighting the statue. Lisa, in conjunction with Desmone Architects and Repco II chose the BK Lighting Saratoga to light the names of the 3100 Sixth Ward residents who served in WWII and the BK Lighting K2 flood lights, mounted among the flower beds, to light the statue.
