    203)  Historic building expert visits Tavern - June 27, 2002
                     Historic building expert John Curtis spends a good part of the day inspecting the Tavern building, addressing a number of issues.  John provides guidance on a section of the front sitting room where apparent evidence of a small liquor locker has been found.  He recommends that the section be restored as the liquor storage and dispensing area.  Also, while many of the walls are still exposed, John provides insight into the mysterious stair access to the second floor, which was unusual for this type of building.

    Historic building expert John Curtis and Walt Landgraf inspect what apparently was the Squires Tavern liquor locker.

                     Six volunteers continue prep work required before plastering can be done.  One more small section of sheetrock is removed.  Portions of the bare plaster are primed.  The floors in several rooms are completely covered with paper to protect them from plaster work.  The plaster work is expected to start in about two weeks.

    Prep work before the plastering starts- paper on the floor and priming sections of the wall.
