Document Description
The American River Conservancy, a Marshall Gold Discovery SHP concessionaire located in the historic Kane House, is making alterations to the main display area inside the structure. The following work will be completed: (1) Add masonite panels to the south wall, the only wall without it; (2) install a new 1/2 door in the existing doorway that divides the Nature Center Display from administration office; (3) install new carpet on the existing underlayment; (4) move an existing aquarium to another part of the room and replace it with a reception desk; (5) attach a sound umbrella to the false acoustical tile ceiling on the northeast corner of the Nature Center display room. Over the years improvements to the interior of the Kane House have been made using modern materials and at present little of the historic fabric of the interior remains. None of the proposed changes in this project will harm historic fabric or change any of the character defining features of the structure. Project supports continued use and maintenance.
