It’s a win for preserving history in Roseville as the City Council awarded the stabilization contract between the city of Roseville and Nolen Construction.

This project will  provide structural stabilization of the Historic Fiddyment House at Pistachio Park off of High School Road.

This phase of construction is expected to last 60 to 90 days.

Council approved the tentative plans on June 20. The contract award is for $211,712. Staff is seeking approval of a change order authorization in an amount not to exceed 20 percent of the contract amount. Maintenance for the facility is provided by volunteers of the Roseville Historical Society.

Since then it has been the Roseville Historical Society and Roseville residents volunteering to help clean up the house and the regal yet unkept property surrounding it.

Roseville Historical Society President Christina Richter is pleased with the progress so far and has high hopes for the future.

“We are thrilled with the progress of the property so far and hope that it can continue to completion.”

According to Richter, Nolen Construction is a group that cares about preserving history in regard to historical restoration and construction.

Nolen Construction invited the Roseville Historical Society out to the construction site to witness the progress, according to Richter.
