Description
The engraved memorial stone honors the commitment and responsibility of the firefighters of Scarsdale, New York, and the work invites an observer to recall also their duty and professionalism. • The commemorative stone rests on a rock base, with its inscribed, dedicatory language spread across its marble surface. • The memorial is situated in a garden-like area before the fire department entranceway to the town’s public safety building. It stands at the Albany Post Road, Route 22, where it intersects Fenimore Road, Scarsdale. The public safety facility began a substantial upgrade in June, 2009, 100 years after its creation. (The town itself was founded in 1701.) During this construction, the memorial -- not altered itself -- was held in temporary storage. Upon the building’s completion, it was returned to its pre-construction position. • Dedicated in 1979, the monument was created through the efforts of Scarsdale firefighters as well as with the support of the town.
