Preservation in Action. The Pagoda exterior restoration project began in the summer of 1999 and was completed in 2003. This project was the first official  restoration of a building on the site. It was paid for ($40,000) through private donations. No Federal or State money was provided. Click here to find out how to join SOS or make a donation. Thank you.
