Interior demolition removes stucco netting on adobe walls

Admin | March 30, 2018 |

The first steps to restoring the interior of the Castro Adobe began when the stucco netting (stucco and chicken wire), which had encased the historic adobe walls since the 1960s, was carefully removed. The removal of the stucco netting exposed the historic walls and finishes, a bit of additional historic graffiti, and evidence of an original shelf in the northeast wall of Room 104.

An original shelf, which had been demolished to accommodate the application of the stucco netting, was exposed. This corner shelf will be restored.
