Brown Bag Lunch - Katrina Trask Gateway Memorial

Event Type: Adult Programs
Date: 4/4/2019
Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Time: 1:00 PM
Description:
 The central feature of Congress Park’s 1922 Katrina Trask Gateway Memorial was its beautiful Adirondack stones, transported from near Schroon River by boat, rail, and horse-drawn sleigh for the special effect of their pink, green, white and black mineral components. The Gateway’s ornate iron gate with its Gothic style cast pillars led to the Katrina Trask House, a center for women’s activities. The original landscaping included white pines, which were featured in every Trask Memorial, and carefully preserved mature forest trees. As the City finishes work on the Gateway, Artist Rumara Jewett will describe its history and significance featuring readings from both George F. Peabody and Mrs. Trask. No registration required.
