Castro floors restored, refinished

It’s been over a year since the pandemic put a halt to our day-to-day lives, but that didn’t stop construction on the Castro Adobe State Historic Park. In fact, the restoration work continued without interruption while the park was closed to the public.

Recently, the floors were restored by carefully sanding and treating with tung oil to protect the wood. The flooring contractor stained the new wood so it is similar in color to the old wood but is still discernable as new/filler flooring. The result is a floor that maintains the historic character of the material while protecting and preserving the wood flooring.
