MPGNJ featured in The Hammonton Gazette article on July 19, 2017
MPG was recently featured in The Hammonton Gazette newspaper on Wednesday, July 19th showcasing our restoration work on the Historic Hammonton Train Station. In this photo you can see MPG’s award-winning masons performing repairs caused by a vehicle striking the building. MPG performed careful brick reconstruction, removing the sections of the damaged rock-faced, iron spot brick and replacing the broken bricks with original material that was surgically harvested from a hidden area of the building. MPG’s skilled craftsmen custom matched the mortar to ensure that the repair work would blend in seamlessly with the original historic masonry façade. While the face bricks were removed, masonry repair work was also performed to the structural back-up wall which had also incurred damage from impact. In addition, a damaged stone window sill required composite patching using a special masonry repair mortar.
The Historic Hammonton Train Station was constructed in 1926. The historic station is located between Camden and Atlantic City, opened in 1929, ceased service in the 1950’s, and the line was completely abandoned in 1966. In 1988, the station was cited as contributing to Mays Landing’s Nationally and State recognized Historic district.
