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.

First the Lead paint needed to be sealed. Encapsulating paint was applied.
Every opening needed to be sealed before the coat of black paint could be applied.
The black coat was sprayed to cover the paneled walls. Red will go on next.
The original red is applied to all beams.
Meanwhile, roof repairs were underway in preparation for painting. The roof color will be red.
