One of our most important projects to date is our work on the Great Arch. The beautiful arch needs our attention and we are actively working on an Analysis Report that will inform us about the condition of the arch and what's needed to preserve it.
We begin our next fundraising endeavor in 2016; the Great Arch and steps leading up to the Courthouse. Both are in dire need of preservation and restoration. Check back for more details as our projects continue!
The restoration of the Mural Room is complete! Thank you to everyone who made this possible.

The Sunken Garden is host to community-wide celebrations around the year. What is often mistaken about this magic place is its layout of stone walls—many are told it is the basement of the former courthouse prior to the 1925 earthquake. This is myth. The sandstone blocks that form the current day landscape were recycled from the older courthouse buildings after the 1925 earthquake.
