Restoration of Historic Coca-Cola Advertisement Completed in Lead

A Coca-Cola sign on the side of the Senior Citizens Center in Lead has been restored, as reported by the Black Hills Pioneer. The Lead Historic Preservation Commission received $3600 in matched funds through the Deadwood Historic Preservation Program’s Outside of Deadwood Grant. In-kind donations and raised funds were contributed for the grant match.

The sign had not been painted in over 30 years. Painter Les Roselles completed the restoration in six weeks with a little more than six gallons of paint. Roselles has completed similar work on the Bodega in Deadwood in 1989.
