Side Door Restoration
After 114 years of faithful and — largely uninterrupted — service, our 7th Street doors are receiving a well-deserved restoration. A century of Central Texas weather, constant high-volume use and their own sheer weight had taken their toll. The grand double-doors — along with their sidelights and the companion door/windows that flank both sides are all being lovingly restored.
We’ll start with the center doors and then make our way from left to right. We’ve asked craftsman David Boringer to help return these doors to health. The constant foot traffic along the sidewalk can be distracting, so David likes to work late when the Square get’s quiet. If you see David working late, give him a wave. He’s doing a fantastic job. We sure appreciate you, David!
