    New Life for the Ross Green Man!

    Image of Green Man


    Several months ago PAST obtained a century-old terra-cotta Green Man... an architectural feature salvaged during demolition of the Ross Building. An ambitious project was undertaken to make a mold of the original and cast exact duplicates. The mold is now complete and soon full-size copies of this rare piece of architectural history will be available to the public.

    Reserve your piece of Binghamton History now!
