Quake-Damaged Adobe Set for $323,000 Restoration

May 31, 1997

It's been more than three years since the adobe at Los Encinos State Historic Park was heavily damaged in the Northridge earthquake. Park officials say it's now time to give it a face-lift.

The bidding process for an architectural plan is about to begin on a project to repair the Encino park's De La Ossa Adobe, built in 1850.

During the 1994 quake, the adobe's roof shifted off the building and the outside fireplace twisted and slammed against the adobe, crumbling its outside wall.

Greg Lewis, a civil engineer with the state Parks and Recreation Department, said the renovation of the adobe is expected to cost about $323,000.
