A good first step. The

A good first step. The problem is that although the structure is historically significant, if it is moved off of its original site, it will be removed from the National Historic Register. I believe that it should remain in place and be incorporated into the government complex as other structures have. According to the county's own Historic Resources Inventory listing, the Garber house is estimated to have been built in 1861. I encourage residents of Mariposa to walk the Government Center and take note of how the building that houses the District attorney's office has been incorporated very nicely into the newer structures around it, and then take a walk across the street from the courthouse where an entire block of homes have been preserved and made into county office space. The same can be done for the Garber House,it just takes A CHANGE IN PLANS, and an active collaboration with the State of California Historic Preservation Office.
