WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representatives from the Cold Spring Granite Company will be in Washington D.C. this weekend, when the monument to Martin Luther King junior is finally dedicated.

The dedication of the memorial on the National Mall is set for Sunday.  It was suppose to take place in August, but was postponed because of Hurricane Irene.

The Cold Spring Granite Company fabricated the granite benches and walls for the memorial.  The walls include quotes from King, President Kennedy, and other civil rights leaders.
