Work To Save Tailing Wheel #1 Set For This Week

Work to stabilize Kennedy Mine Tailing Wheel #1 is slated to take place this week.  Early Thursday morning, two large cranes will lift the wheel onto new steel frame supports that will allow the iconic piece of Amador County history to be stabilized.  According to the Kennedy Mine Foundation, through a number of generous donations from the community, this first phase in the Wheel’s restoration is possible.  Estimated to run between, 15,000 to 20,000 dollars, any monies left over from this first phase will go towards the future efforts of the Kennedy Mine Foundation to preserve the Wheel.  The stabilization project is expected to be completed by the end of the day on Thursday, allowing the Main Street Theater Works, to hold their Merchants Preview performance that night and then opening night on Friday, of The Crucible.  If you would like to help in the continuing efforts to save the Kennedy Tailing Wheels, you can contribute by sending a check to: The Kennedy Mine Foundation, P.O. Box 684 Jackson, California  95642.
