Description

The Monumental Bronze Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut was one of the most iconic and unique American manufacturing companies in history. The company created made to order, one of a kind, unique zinc tombstones and monuments from 1874 until 1914. During this period the huge national demand for personal and public monuments seemed endless. Bridgeport’s Monumental Bronze Company became the distinctive and exclusive purveyor of cast monuments and tombstones. Each and every one of them unique. These metal markers, monuments to famous people, citizen soldiers, public and personal funerary memorials were a remarkable tribute to American manufacturing and ingenuity.
