1. Sign Posted During Restoration
During an extensive restoration, fencing was placed around the building and access to the marker was not available. A sign was mounted on the fence which read:
Designed by the prominent San Francisco architectural firm of Bliss and Faville, the building constructed between 1914 and 1918 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a California Registered Historical Landmark.
The building suffered significant damage during the 6.5 magnitude San Simeon Earthquake on December 22, 2003. Since that time City of Atascadero staff have been working with FEMA, the State Department of Historic Preservation and the elite team of Architects, Engineers and Historians to repair this important symbol of Atascadero.
Restoration is currently underway and is anticipated to be completed in 2013 in time for the Atascadero’s Centennial Celebration.
