MARCOZA Castings Refinishes Bronze Plaques from 1965 for Fort Worth Botanic Garden useful content.
MARCOZA Castings refinishes bronze plaques that were originally procured elsewhere in the 1950′s, but never installed due to typographical errors. While craftsmen from MARCOZA Castings refinishes bronze plaques, Acme Brick donated materials for a new decorative wall. Greg Smith, Triple M Construction, installed the wall giving a fresh new accent to the south entrance. In addition, decorative lanterns from the old Montgomery Ward Building now provide elegant lighting accent to refurbished entrance. Once again the community comes together to preserve a piece of the iconic history of Fort Worth for future generations.
