Though the archive is closed to the public and even most church members, McNairn offered to give committee members a tour while she was in town for the weekend. Committee members declined, but expressed interest in a tour at a later date.

McNairn didn't elaborate on the workings of the archive, but, according to published reports from 1997, the church constructed an underground tunnel and chamber in the area at the site of the former Lady Washington Mine.

Planning documents filed with the county at the time called for a 15-foot-wide, 250-foot-long-tunnel. The first 98 feet from the entrance were improved, with a 10.5-foot domed ceiling. At the end of the 98 feet, documents showed a 10-foot-long storage room, with the rest of the tunnel unimproved.
