Folger Stable earns awards, open for tours

 

The recently renovated Folger Stable at Wunderlich Park in Woodside has received two prestigious awards.

The "California Construction" publication cited the stable as "the best renovation/restoration project completed in Northern California in the last 12 months." The award was presented to Gonzales and Stronck contractors, architect Adolph Rosekrans of Woodside, and structural engineer Ephriam Hirsch.

Mr. Rosekrans also received the honor award from the American Institute of Architects, San Mateo County chapter, the highest of their three award categories for excellence in design.

Stable tours

Visitors may now take docent-led tours of the stable on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 and 2:30 p.m. Admission is free, but reservations are required. The carriage room, which provides displays highlighting the heritage of Folger Stable and Wunderlich County Park, is open to the public from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

For reservations and information, call Jeanne Thivierge at 851-2660.

The stable is located in Wunderlich Park at 4040 Woodside Road, near the Portola Road intersection, in Woodside.
