Forbes-Linchpin Structural Engineering teamed with Dennis E. Zirbel, Architect, and Corri Jimenez, Architectural Historian, to prepare a Historic Structures Report for the Truckee Donner Land Trust. Forbes-Linchpin provided the structural evaluation and peer review for the report.
The Hotel was built in 1860. It is log construction in a simple gable form. Linchpin found the structure to be in relatively good condition and considers it to be a reliable structure for future use. The foundations will need to be restored and deterioration addressed.
