You can probably tell from the photos that the front steps of Benedictine Hall didn't survive the earthquake too well, especially the part of the steps that served as a "landing pad" for the turret which fell during the actual earthquake. The steps will be replaced as part of the restoration project. The quarry, near Carthage Missouri, that the marble originally came from has long been closed so the new steps won't be the exact stone but will be a close match to what is there now. What other repairs will need to be made to the front entryway can't be determined until they dismantle what is there now. No telling what mysteries will be revealed when the current marble steps are removed. Guess we will have to wait to see what the next steps will look like.
