Project Office Building has begun!
On Saturday, August 29, fifteen volunteers conducted a major clean-up of the Treadwell Mine Office Building that included removal several tons of debris and dirt from the interior of the building as well as scrap metal and large pieces of roofing around the perimeter of the structure. Seven volunteers from the Treadwell Society were assisted by eight strapping zip line guides from Alaska Canopy Adventures to complete the messy and long over-due project. A Parks and Recreation Department employee was also onsite and the interior floor was power washed. In the next few weeks expect pieces of hanging metal roofing to be removed and trees in the immediate area to be removed as the Society begins its preservation project.
Rescuing our History
A preservation project to save the Treadwell Mine office building across the Gastineau Channel from downtown Juneau, just south of Douglas, the Treadwell Mine played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Juneau-Douglas community.
