RED BLUFF, Calif. -- A major reconstruction is about to get underway at the historic Ide Adobe state park in Red Bluff.

The 166-year-old adobe home was nearly destroyed by an old oak tree about four years ago.

This is the oldest adobe in the North Valley built in 1852 by an early Red Bluff settler.
Throughout the years the house was reconstructed to fit the needs of its 25 owners before becoming a historic state park in 1960.
This new project, announced Friday by the state parks department, is more than a repair job.
One ranger said Friday to Action News Now it is important to the community that the adobe is restored to it's original form.

"We've had a lot of people in the years since its been damaged come and ask when its going to be reconstructed and when the work is going to begin and everyone's pretty excited that it's starting," said Ben Griswold, Visitor Center Park Aid at Ide Adobe.

A tin roof was put on the house after the tree fell in July of 2014 to prevent any further damage.
Historic photos and documents will be used in an attempt to replicate the 1852 structure.
The project will cost half-a-million dollars.

The renovation of this treasured landmark hopes to be restored and open to the public in approximately six months.
