Since 1959, Saint-Gaudens' plaster version of the Shaw Memorial has been on display in a three-sided shelter on the grounds of the artist's home and studio in Cornish, New Hampshire, a National Historic Site. Though the National Park Service had maintained the plaster, forty years of exposure to harsh winters, spring thaws and rain, humid summers, and atmospheric pollutants left it in need of conservation treatment.
