Fixtures, doors, siding, paneling, windows, and other features that will be replaced to "match original" will only be done so once it is determined what the original features were. This will be determined by reviewing original plans as well as historic photographs. Care will be taken to ensure that features that were never in place are not installed in or on the historic structure. These measures will ensure that the project follows the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Project supports use and maintenance and protects historic resources.
