Plaque Manufacturing and Installation Photos

The sturdy bronze plaques were designed by the Historical Society and made at EAG (EngravingAwardsGifts.com) of Laconia, New Hampshire. Mr. Chuck Anderson of D-Tech (Diversified Technical Resources) of Richmond, which does custom decorative concrete designs, received the plaques in March 2009.  He manufactured and installed the six Heritage Walk of Fame plaques.  Each plaque is encased in 150 pound redbrick colored 9500 PSI concrete and located in the sidewalk around the Madison County Court House.
