SU:BJ.ECT: MORE THOUGHTS ON THE PAREDES-DODGE HOUSE

I feel that the Paredes-Dodge Ho:use is one of our most important

buildings. It deserves to be restored and interpreted.



Ql ou might know I was asked to produce a preliminary budget for

*hp restoration of the Paredes-Dodge House. I came up with a

thimum figure of $40,000 and over 1,000 hours of staff labor.

The type of restoration we do is directly relative to the future

use and interpretation of the structure.



My thoughts of a good use involve a combination interpretive site

and Museum Store annex. I can see the building, once restored,

as an example of building technologies of 1812. The exterior and

interior of the building would act as a artifact for self guided

interpretation. While the building was accomplishing this it

would also act as a craft store with a certain direction and

focus that would blend well with the Juan Parades interpretation.

Nautical gifts and activities would be an ideal focus along with

the added primitive trading activities that took place

historically in the area.



I see the back yard as an excellent opportunity to interpret

early 19th century landscaping and yard use. This area could

also house an ongoing archeological exhibit and research program.
