Note ID: MS152
Weather Conditions: evening, mid-60's
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 5/6/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Kitchen (E/R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Observed floor framing of Dining Room from Kitchen, particularly beneath mantel that was located in Dining Room (mantel later removed). Framing is quite different from that used to support the early 19th century mantels. In this case the hearth support consisted of three headers. Compared this floor/ceiling framing to that exposed beneath the North Ballroom.

Note ID: JL587
Weather Conditions: Sunny, mid-70's
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 5/7/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Household Storage (E)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of west wall where a new opening in the brick wall is being created to connect to the stair hall, just south of the north stair. At this new opening the current stair hall floor is a couple of feet above the demolished floor level in the area below the north ballroom. In observing th cross-section of the stair hall floor at the new opening, the backside of painted wood boards was discovered. These finished wood boards appear to be applied to the face of the brick wall in the stair hall, but are now covered by fill and a later raised floor. The boards do not extend acrosss the entire opening. The demolition superintendent was informed of this discovery so that as the stair hall floor is demolished and excavated, hopefully these boards can be left undisturbed and exposed for further study.

Note ID: JL585
Weather Conditions: Sunny, mid-70's
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 5/7/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Household Storage (E)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of early wallpaper discovered where the former north partition of the walk-in cooler intersected the east brick wall that was the rear wall of the original mansion. This wallpaper matches that found elsewhere in the area below the north ballroom (east wall of the former women's toilet, and west wall of the former storage room), and appears to suggest the entire area below the north ballroom was one large room in the early 19th century.

Notes: Video and digital photos of earth excavation around outside of masonry pit structure discovered below the demolished concrete slab (see above). The excavated material is compacted clay fill mixed with river rocks, similar to that found below exterior original walls. The backsides of the pit's brick walls were obviously laid to be hidden, as in a retaining wall.
