RSVP

William Conrad Severson, an internationally renowned sculptor, designed a modern granite obelisk to memorialize himself and his wife. What makes this monument so unique is that during the fall and spring Equinox, at Solar Noon, the obelisk acts as a sundial, casting a cross of light on the ground.

Join us September 22 to watch the phenomenon of this uniquely crafted memorial.

Gathering at 12:30 and informal discussion about the Severson.  Solar noon occurs at 12:53:11 pm.
