Just One of the Thirty-Four Limestone Grotesques to Be Salvaged From the Old Worcester Polytechnic Institute Gymnasium Before the Hundred-Year-Old Building Is Demolished Later This Year (Originally Published on Gargoyles and Grotesques on April 21, 2016)

  1. Do you know where these gargoyles have been moved to?

    • I really wish I knew. They were supposed to go into storage, and then brought back to the WPI campus in some way either mounted on the new auditorium they were building or placed on pedestals throughout the campus, but far as I know neither ever happened.
