All spiffed up ... almost
Restoration work at the McKinley Monument in Niagara Square is moving along and is scheduled to wrap up soon.
The project began in June and is the first restoration of the monument in 110 years.
The project is expected to be finished by next Wednesday, the 110th anniversary of the monument’s dedication, and the 116th anniversary of President William McKinley’s shooting by Leon Czolgosz at the 1901 Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo.
