In 2017 native Samuel Kilpatrick's statue of Col. Crawford will have been standing in the same spot at the Connellsville Carnegie Free Library for 100 years. This is the oldest bronze statue in Fayette County, and the only statue in Fayette to honor Col. Crawford.
The restoration cost of this statue was $9,500.00. This includes the initial cleaning, brazing repairs and refinishing to make the statue new again. The restoration work was completed in two weeks.
