Restoration Project Videos
As part of our desire to preserve the art of historic stone building restoration work, we have produced this series of “Training Videos”. These videos were made to document the work we are doing for future caretakers of St. Joseph Apache Mission church. We offer them here to anyone who may have an interest in what we are doing.First a Background Video (4:21) on the Restoration of St. Joseph Apache Mission Church and Veterans' Memorial
