Perry Monument Upgrades
As part of the Perry 200 Celebration held in 2013, a relighting ceremony was held at the Perry Monument. Sixteen light assemblies were installed at the base of the monument to brighten the structure at night. In addition, a bright white light beam was placed at the top of the monument to shine upward into the night sky.
Close to $115,000 was spent to relight the monument and add a picnic pavilion in the nearby parking area. These funds were primarily raised through the Best Summer Night concert featuring Crosby, Stills & Nash.
