Name a Bench      Recognize a Loved One          Honor a Friend 

Help Friends of the Eastern Promenade restore the past. Your participation in this bench recognition program demonstrates your commitment to this exceptional landscape and to those who have served. 

Seven World's Fair benches are available for recognition as part of an integral part of our campaign to provide a more dignified setting for this significant memorial. 

These benches are timeless and there are several bench locations still available for commemoration. Bronze plaques allow for three lines of text with 21 characters per line. The benches are made from cast iron and environmentally harvested brazilian walnut Ipe hardwood (pronounced ee-pay) that naturally resists rot, decay, insects, and mold. 

This wood is an environmentally responsible choice that naturally resists rot, decay, insects, and mold without the use of toxic chemicals.

Commemorative benches intended for placement at the Jacob Cousins Memorial are $5,000, and 100% of your contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Our bench recognition program directly supports the Jacob Cousins Memorial Renovation Project.
