Over the past few months work has been completed to restore the board room in Bridgeport where the Mono County Board of Supervisors meets the first and second Tuesday of every month. The Board Room can be found on the second floor of the second oldest continuously-used courthouse in the state.
Three impressive maps were restored and preserved and are now on display. One of which is the Official Plat of the Bodie Town-site Survey, hand drawn in 1880 and submitted to the County Clerk
Included in the restoration, the removal of acoustical wall panels, significant plaster repair, and a new coat of paint. Period lighting fixtures replaced the fluorescent lamps. The original calendar clock (now worth over $30,000) approved for purchase by the Board on November 7, 1881 was sent out for repairs and is back gracing the wall. –Press Release
