Last year, Friends of Chatham and our partner organizations, The Rappahannock Valley Garden Club and the Rappahannock-Fredericksburg Rotary Club, funded the restoration work to the Pan Cupola, Pan statue and the Ceres statue on the grounds of Chatham.
During that work, Scott McKee of Sculpture in Architecture found that there are structural issues with the Pan Cupola roof and soffit that were outside of the scope of work included in the 2017 project description. Scott created a detailed plan of how to correct the issues so that that the structural integrity of the Cupola and the restoration work completed in 2017 will be protected in the longterm.
Would you like to help save the Pan Cupola?
Friends of Chatham has created an “Adopt – A” fundraising program whereby generous donors can adopt a part of the project costs.
