Note ID: MS134
Weather Conditions: Sunny, high 60's
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 5/4/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Coat Room (E) / Reception (R)
Work Type: Excavation
Notes: A foundation has been uncovered in the basement area below the Entry Hall. The area is contaminated with asbestos. The feature is a roughly 8' x 10' rectangular area, bordered by a low brick wall. Near the center is a ramp-like depression about 3' x 4'. Raoul, the worker in charge of exposing the foundation, reported that he had found a lot of black rock "like comes from a volcano." Cara Metz guesses that the feature is an old furnace pit, and the black rock is slag, a byproduct of coal burning. This appears likely. Framing in the ceiling indicates that an old heating vent once opened in the floor of the Entry Hall above.

Report Date: 5/5/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Beneath Ballrooms

Notes: Video and digital photos of possible brick flooring discovered below the demolished concrete slab close to the north wall in the area below the north ballroom.

At this time, only a roughly 8'x10' section of the demolished area appears to have this possible brick flooring.
