The kitchen, not normally on the tours because of its condition, will now be open to see!  It  was altered in 1896 and after the 1906 earthquake but is mostly original, a dishwasher was added too!. We are  pleased to be able to make some of these positive historic changes thanks to your donations! It is not over, unforeseen challenges has made this project more costly than anticipated and we can still use your help as a volunteer painting and cleaning or through any donations you can offer.
