Location: Mansion - Basement - Hall (E) / Stairhall (R)

Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 4/29/1999

Notes: Video and digital photos of subfloor beneath parquetry in north stair on first floor. An infilled rectangular opening for the former stair exists against the west wall.

Report Date: 4/29/1999
Location: Mansion - First Floor - Stair Hall (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of two floor boards at the top of the north stair. These boards are obviously salvaged wood trim boards, due to their painted decorative reeding. The finished decorative sides face the basement below. These boards are very similar to the reeded decorative trim used in original first floor door frames.
