The restoration of the 4 Bar 4 Hotel and Ford Barn will be executed in keeping with the Secretary of the Interiors standards for historic preservation. This means the buildings will be carefully dismantled and each reusable log, window, piece of flooring, etc. will be labeled and stored for reuse during restoration.
Phase 1 - 2016 COMPLETE!
With the help of many volunteers, debris has been cleared from the site and both buildings have been stabilized. Water drainage has been routed; the hotel and Ford Barn are tarped. The 4 Bar 4 is now secured for the winter. $2,000
Phase 2 - 2017 Dismantle the Stagecoach Hotel
All reusable pieces are being carefully removed, labeled, secured and stored for re-use in the restoration process. Comprehensive photo and written documentation is being prepared to ensure accuracy during restoration.
Phase 3 - 2018 Restoration of the Ford Barn
A portion of this work will be paid for by a grant from the State Historical fund.
The barn will be stabilized so that it can be lifted and deteriorated lower logs can be removed. A foundation will be put in place and lower level logs will be repaired or replaced. The barn then be lowered onto new foundation.
Upper level logs will then be repaired or replaced, a new roof will be constructed and drainage will be appropriately routed.
A cash match of $104,517 is required to receive the SHF grant. Your tax deductible donation is greatly appreciated to ensure we get this important grant. Historic Fraser, Inc. PO BOX 205 Fraser, CO 80442
