The .brick from the two three- s,toried ,buildings is approximately ninety years old and in excellent condition. This type ,brick is often used in the reconstruction of his- toric buildings ,and by persons er- ecting modern dwellings who pre- fer :the ~ppearance of this ancient brick to i~s present-day counter- part. Anderson said that much of the in~erior of these structures is still in a remarkable state of pre- servation including staircases, rail ings and ,floorboards. The removal of Vhese buildings ~s part of the restoration program undertaken by the Na, tlonal Park Service in 1954 ,and still in pro- gress.
