Following damage caused by the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake, a series of repairs and restoration projects at Castro Adobe Historic State Park continues. Work has included earthquake repair and seismic stabilization, second-floor strengthening and installation of an ADA lift, restoration of the exterior elements, and ongoing interpretive planning for exhibit design and installation. Recently, water intrusions in portions of the roof area were affecting the historic building, and repair was needed for the protection of the adobe construction as well as the use of the site. The $175,000 roof project is now completed.  Located in bucolic Larkin Valley, near Watsonville, the two-story Castro Adobe, built between 1848-49, is one of the finest examples of a rancho hacienda in the Monterey Bay area.
