A Brief History of the Adrian Block Tablet

The bronze commemorative tablet was originally installed in September 1890 at the former Aldrich Court, 41-45 Broadway. When that building was demolished in 1982, the tablet was removed from the building and returned to The Holland Society, where it has remained in storage.

Earlier this year, the tablet was restored and plans were made to return it to its former location on Broadway, which today is the Broadway Atrium Building. 

September 2017 marks the 127th anniversary of the tablet's original dedication by The Holland Society of New York
