Today, South Yuba River State Park volunteers, Empire Mine trail maintenance crew, a local contractor and member of the Penn Valley Chamber of commerce George Case and his crew took another step toward a grand opening of the Historic Barn as the centerpiece of the Bridgeport Transportation Center. They carried in and spread a huge pile of decomposed granite with shovels, wheelbarrows, rakes, and even gloved hands, to form the new floor around the thirteen Gold Rush era wagons that were already in place. Taking pictures was like climbing around a bee hive and attempting to capture the busy bees' activities without disturbing them. The intensity of activity was a sight to behold. Pictures here are simply in chronological order, except for the first two, which were taken last from Pleasant Valley Road.
