Benefit Event for the National Trust for Historic Preservation

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Garavaglia Architecture, Inc., was invited to participate as an exhibitor for the Western Office of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s benefit Sip Some Wine & Walk Through Time on October 7th. The event was hosted in the “Old Mint” located at Fifth and Mission Streets in San Francisco.

The Old Mint, sometime referred to as the “Granite Lady”, is a national landmark and was built between 1869 and 1874. Not only was it one of the few buildings to survive the 1906 earthquake, but at one point also produced 59% of the US gold and silver coins and held one-third of the nation’s gold reserves during the great depression. Currently, the building is undergoing restoration for use as home to the San Francisco Museum & Historical Society.

Representing the firm were Mike Garavaglia, Principal, and Dea Bacchetti, Marketing Manager. Sheila Mc Elroy, Principal of Circa: Historic Property Development and longtime collaborator with Garavaglia Architecture Inc., was also present.
