Zoom into the upper part of the first photo when the roof was still on.
See the architectural ornaments (panels, brackets and fascia) ?
They have been removed and are being cleaned, sanded, refinished and restored.
Some of the brackets had termite infestation and some had dry rot. This is normal for its age. The solution was to drill holes in them to air them, then they are filled with epoxy to seal them completely and hopefully give them another 150+ years.
