Ongoing projects on Treadwell Mine Historic Trail

September 7, 2018 – FYI, News

The Treadwell Historic Preservation & Restoration Society is currently working on two projects within the Treadwell Mine Historic Trail, which is managed by the City and Borough of Juneau Parks & Recreation Department.

For the next two weeks, a contractor with the Treadwell Society is painting the inside and outside of the Treadwell Mine Office Building. The painting is part of the Treadwell Society’s ongoing rehabilitation project of the office building. Last summer, the Treadwell Society replaced the roof. This summer, the second floor was removed, the windows got new frames, and the ground level floor was redone. Next spring, interpretive signage will be placed inside. Funding for the rehabilitation project is through a Rasmuson Foundation grant, city sales tax contribution, and the Treadwell Society.

The Treadwell Society is also replacing the roof of the Treadwell Mine Transformer House along the trail accessed by St. Ann’s Street. Work will include the removal of three or four trees close to the building. Funding for this project is through the Treadwell Society.

The Treadwell Mine Historic Trail is located on Douglas Island, near Sandy Beach and Savikko Park.
