As we move closer and closer to move-in day – the final details are taking shape and most of the original elements are going back into place. 100 plus years of paint and dirt took it’s toll…but luckily, our teams restoration efforts are beginning to show what the architects had planned for the G.A.R. back in the 1890’s.In addition to the handrails being stripped and repaired you can see the toe kicks along the stairs are being restored and made as close to original as possible.
Imagine the aging veterans making their way up these stairs in the 1920’s and 30’s.
Note that the walls have also all been plastered and restored to their original look and feel as well.
