The "Acorn' Building in Paso Robles
The building you see here is the resurrected version, rebuilt to look like the original in 2006. To me it represents the determination of the people of Paso Robles to put their city back together after the closure of many downtown buildings after the 6.5 earthquake. For years the view from the park included many construction fences and wooden sidewalks as the city rebuilt. Now our visitors see the "new" city and may not even know about its short "ugly" period. It's beautiful once again.
Were you in Paso Robles on the day the earthquake happened in December, 2003, as people were finishing up their Christmas shopping?
Now you can put the Acorn Building back together again by working this puzzle available on Zazzle.
