The Friends of the Cowell Lime Works has announced that the historic Cardiff Shed, dismantled a few years ago, has been successfully reconstructed. We had hoped to install the interpretive sign, have a ribbon cutting, and begin using it to store historic artifacts early this year. Unfortunately, these activities had to be put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

We would like to once again thank all those who helped with this project, including several past UCSC students. Architect Dennis Diego — a member of the Friends board — drew up the plans. Redtree Partners L.P. and Cen-Con, Inc. made generous contributions, which along with funds raised from Friends memberships, made completion of the project possible.
