November 18, 1981 - EMERGENCY REPAIRS BEGIN
The carriage house is in a particularly vunerable state of disrepair. Emergency measures taken to prevent its collapse include stopgap repairs to the roof and tower. In the race against the accelerating deterioration of Wilderstein’s buildings, full restoration would have to wait. In the years that follow, temporary measures are taken to prevent water damage in the mansions attic, library, and tower, and to prevent the collapse of the porte-cochere and the potting house.
