Join Us: Phase 2 Major Construction Kick-off at the Castro Adobe
Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks has reached a new milestone in the restoration of the Rancho San Andrés Castro Adobe: the start of Phase 2 Major Construction.
Phase 2 Major Construction includes:
- Construction of new interior stairs to create a larger space for the interpretation of the second floor fandango (dance) room
- Installation of a lift to make the second story fully accessible to all
- Final tie-in to the seismic stabilization system
- Installation of a structural steel beam to strengthen the second floor, making it accessible to groups of school children and other park visitors
This is a significant event as Friends moves forward in partnership with California State Parks to open the first State Historic Park in the Pajaro Valley. Phase 2 Major Construction Kick-off will be celebrated during the Castro Adobe Open House Day, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14. There will be a ceremony at 12 p.m. Please join us.
Castro Adobe State Historic Park is located at 184 Old Adobe Road, off of Larkin Valley Road north of Watsonville. Parking is extremely limited, so please carpool. The Open House Day will include tours of the property and historical demonstrations. learn more here on the Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks website.
