Note ID: MS167
Weather Conditions: Partly cloudy, low 80's
Report Author: Mary Harding Sadler
Report Date: 5/12/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Hall (E) / Stairhall (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Removal of the slab at the base of the north stair has exposed a painted piece of wood about 20" wide by 3/4" thick on the east wall. It appears that the wood may be a piece of flat trim (like wainscot) that was used as a backer board to contain fill and the concrete pour. Below the level of the recently removed slab, the brick is whitewashed at door jambs (east side of hall). Portions of the brick wall (west) are plastered and painted. It appears that the floor level was raised more than 12" in the stair hall and in the rooms west of the stair hall.
