Stuart-Mosby Historical Society Completes Restoration of
Major General James Ewell Brown Stuart, CSA
The Stuart-Mosby Historical Society has completed the restoration of the statue honoring Major General James Ewell Brown (JEB) Stuart located on Historic Monument Avenue in the City of Richmond, Virginia.
The Stuart statue, owned by the City of Richmond, is one of a series of monuments on the avenue that annually attracts thousands of visitors to Virginia’s Capital City.
First installed in May 1907, and resurfaced 30-plus years ago, the Stuart Statue became discolored and needed repair in various places. Steve Roy, with Bronze et al, Ltd., and his staff completed the repairs in April and May 2016. The Society held a ceremony in May to recognize the generous donors to this important project.
The Stuart-Mosby Historical Society intends to establish a fund to underwrite yearly maintenance of this important symbol of its heritage. The SMHS is a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt organization as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
The Stuart Monument is one of a series of seven attractions in Richmond that have earned designation as a National Historic Landmark. The Historic District includes statues of Robert E. Lee (1890), Stuart (1907), Jefferson Davis (1907), Stonewall Jackson (1919), Commodore Mathew F. Maury (1929) and Arthur Ashe (1996).
