American Artisans At Work Preserving History

Grand Light Revisits Minute Man National Historical Park to Clean Crystal Chandelier

Minute Man National Historical Park, located in and around the towns of Lexington, Lincoln, and Concord, Massachusetts, commemorates the opening battle in the American Revolution. This National Historical Park is under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service and was established on September 21, 1959.

The lighting restoration specialists from Grand Light traveled back to Minute Man National Historical Park in Concord, Massachusetts to clean a previously repaired and restored crystal chandelier. The chandelier is displayed in the Stedman Buttrick House, which serves as the park’s headquarters and visitors’ center for the historic North Bridge. Performing on-site cleaning required artisans use ladders and a 30ft portable power-lift to thoroughly hand-clean each individual glass and crystal component. All work was completed within one day and without disrupting the daily activities of park personnel.


A 30ft portable power-lift and ladders were used to safely reach every level and component of this historic crystal chandelier.


Grand Light specialists hand-cleaned each chandelier arm, crystal components, glass globes, and body with a proprietary cleaning solution.


The reassembled and cleaned crystal chandelier is a sight to behold.
