Over time, the brick and mortar have seen their fair share of challenges from washing methods and natural wear, and numerous patches have been made due to the building’s shifting, resulting in a lack of uniform color. To combat this, the contractor, Komatsu Architecture, worked closely with the Texas Historical Commission to find the perfect mixture of historically accurate mortar – one that is soft, permeable and matches the original color. Surprises have occurred. A concealed door was found within the exterior east wall of the basement. Also uncovered was evidence of the stage’s expansion. They are presently in the process of removing the “add-on” section of the stage, paving the way for an updated floor plan for the stage area, complete with a shiny new door in the basement. Committed to maintaining historic accuracy, the historic facilities from the third-floor restroom were carefully relocated and will be reinstalled when the time is right. Contractors are presently in the “discovery” phase, ensuring that everything that is revealed aligns with the original plans. Photo by Brian Besch
