NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
On the grounds of Shasta State Historic Park, the Coyle-Foster Barn, which was moved from Trinity Center, Trinity County in 1960, is used to store artifacts and interpret the history of the California Gold Rush Era of the 1850s. The project will stabilize the barn by constructing foundation piers on its east side and anchoring the building to this new foundation. The existing foundation pier stones will be removed, identified for each location and reinstalled on the new hidden constructed piers. The existing stone piers will be drilled, pinned, and anchored with epoxy to the new foundation. A piece of metal flat-bar will be imbedded in the new, concrete rafters and purlin, if necessary, and a new shake roof will be installed. The structural integrity of support timbers will be evaluated. Those that fail this evaluation will be replaced. Drainage structure around the perimeter of the east and west side of the barn will be constructed by excavating trench and installing a French drain system to dissipate water from each side of the structure. Existing sideboards of the barn will be repaired or replaced in a manner to restore the existing fabric of the barn. Although the barn itself is not eligible for listing on the California Register of Historic Resources, it is a compatible, non-contributing element of a historic district. To preserve this status, the work shall be Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation of historic properties. Should cultural artifacts be found during excavation of the site, a DPR-qualified cultural resource specialist will be consulted regarding their documentation and preservation.
