Lighting Lady Liberty
Illuminating national monument began with Newton native’s spark of ingenuity
Last month, as Hurricane Sandy roared up the eastern seaboard, dozens of national parks and monuments sustained damage. Hardest hit was a group of 15 parks located in and around the New York City metropolitan area.
Most noticeable among those was the Statue of Liberty, which was darkened by the storm.
Last week, with the generous donation of equipment and services from Musco Lighting of Oskaloosa, the Statue of Liberty was able to shine once again until a full assessment of the extent of the damage to the lighting system is complete and a permanent fix implemented. What few may know is that illuminating Lady Liberty has been an Iowa tradition for nearly a century.
