The old post office/saloon.
This is the old post office/saloon, which is part of the ghost town property Boswell and Nelson purchased.
The post office was built in the 1870s when the town was a thriving mining community.

The walls had no framing, and the bottom 18 inches of the exterior boards were rotten.
The middle section of the wall once held swinging saloon doors. The boards for this section were merely hanging there, supporting nothing.
Framing the interior walls had to be done in segments to keep the wall from falling down.
Because the new frame wall was square, they had to insert OSB to bridge the gap between the frame wall and the exterior boards.
New boards to fill-in the gaps.
Foaming in the gaps.
