  • People gather to get their first glimpse of the grand ruby in Old Town's crown.
The North Coast Indian Development Council moved back into the bottom floor last week, and rumor has it most of the offices in the newly renovated Carson Block building have been rented, but the public got its first peek at all of the work that's been done on this historic building during today's grand opening.

After a short speech by NCIDC Executive Director Terry Coltra and a traditional prayer by Wiyot elder Cheryl Seidner, Mayor Frank Jager produced a pair of oversized scissors and helped cut the red ribbon. The public then filed in, most making their way upstairs to the Ingomar Theatre, where local restaurants were serving snacks. Everyone seemed to agree — the old place looks pretty good.

For the full story on what it took to restore this 124-year-old building, check out our March cover story, found here.
