Ahwahnee Hotel Decorative Paint Analysis

Yosemite National Park » Ahwahnee Hotel Decorative Paint Analysis » Document List

This project proposes to augment available information on historic decorative and non-decorative paint finishes inside The Ahwahnee National Historic Landmark hotel that would inform treatment recommendations. This project is proposed in conjunction with The Ahwahnee Comprehensive Rehabilitation Plan, and would 1) provide information on the condition, patterns, and colors of concealed or missing stencils on selected interior walls and ceiling beams, 2) assess the chronology and colors of paint layers in selected non-decorative areas (e.g., original shutters, window frames), and 3) assess the feasibility and methodologies for preservation, rehabilitation, or restoration of historic decorative stencils and historic paint colors in The Ahwahnee.
