Note ID: JL572
Weather Conditions: Sunny, mid-70's
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 5/5/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Security Chief (E) / Office (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video, digital photos and field sketches (plan and section) of masonry pit structure discovered below the demolished concrete slab. It appears to relate to an early twentieth century furnace pit or room due to the depression in the slab, the mortar hardness and the prior opening in the floor above which may have been a grill for ductless distribution of heat.

Note ID: JL574
Weather Conditions: Sunny, mid-70's
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 5/5/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Women (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of north end of west wall in area below the north ballroom, where an opening is being created in the brick bearing wall. Just like the east wall in the former women's toilet, this west has a later plaster wall with handsplit wood lath on furring strips applied to a finished plaster wall on the original brick. Applied to the brick plastered wall is wallpaper, matching that found in the former women's toilet. It appears that the area below the north ballroom was, at one time, one open room with wallpapered, plastered walls. Wallpaper shown to Cara Metz, VDHR.

Report Date: 5/6/1999

Jack hammers are being used to loosen the clay mixed with river rock. Material being removed is clay with rock, brick fragments, and concrete fragments.

Note ID: MS150
Weather Conditions: evening, mid-60's
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 5/6/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Hall (E) / Stairhall (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Examined new masonry openings made in west wall of stairhall. Two of the openings had finished brick (painted, smooth-faced brick) sides suggesting locations of historic openings in that wall. The southernmost opening (into the Mansion Director's Office) appeared to have been a window prior to being enlarged as a door. An opening just north of the center of the wall appeared to be a narrow door opening.
