Adjacent to this historic building is Christo & Jeanne-Claude Running Fence Park, which commemorates the area as the location of a 1972-1976 art project that consisted of a fabric fence that stretched for 24.5 miles.

This quarter-acre park provides a small parking lot, lawn and picnic tables. A portable restroom is available.


Accessible parking space and loading area; accessible paths of travel to the building, family picnic site and portable restroom.
