Damage description: "A major portion of the damage the Lopez-Lowther Adobe sustained was influenced by preexisting moisture damage at the base of the walls. The longitudinal, load-bearing walls were cracked and damaged along their length. In several areas, crumbling of the weakened adobe at the base of the walls caused the plaster to bulge outward. Another area of major damage was the north gable-end wall that appears to have deteriorated over the last few years, but was seriously affected by the earthquake. The south gable-end wall has some cracking but is in much better condition than the north. ... Both the east and west walls have moderate to extensive damage along their lengths."
