Interior Work

The interior rehabilitation work focuses on four spaces of primary historical significance as defined in documented evaluations when the building was first purchased by the City. The Main Waiting Room, the two story vaulted space containing the John MacQuarrie mural that depicts the ground breaking of the Transcontinental Railroad, the two-story former restaurant space, the lobby to the restaurant, and the second floor corridor overlooking the Main Waiting Room, are being rehabilitated to their original materials, finishes and colors under the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. Color analysis was done to expose the original wall colors and microscopic analysis of paint samples from window frames revealed the original color layers from 1926.
