MESILLA, N.M. — Work on renovating the historic gazebo in the Mesilla plaza is well underway.
Crews have already knocked down the roof and supporting columns that weren't structurally sound.
The "kiosko" had experienced flood damage and even a termite infestation in the past.
Mesilla will use state funding from last year while at the same trying to salvage as much as they can to save on building materials.
The reconstructed gazebo will be as close to identical as the old one preserving its history.
