Water damage from rains and winter snow have taken a toll. Chunks of the old adobe wall are falling out and cracks are appearing throughout the old building. The water well needs replacing and the water wheel needs repairs. Though it's listed as a historic site, the Preservation Corporation receives no state or federal funding. It is totally dependent on donations, which have gone down.
The picture gallery below shows some of the damage.
