Freedom Of Information Act

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) gives you the right to access any Department of the Interior (DOI) records unless the information in those records is protected by one or more of the nine exemptions (reasons an agency may withhold records from a requester) and there is a sound legal basis to withhold them.

You may submit FOIA requests to the NPS or the DOI. If you have questions on what information is available without submitting a FOIA request or where it may be located, contact one of the NPS or DOI FOIA Contacts. Our responsibility is to provide you with copies of the documents you are entitled to receive under the law. We want to work with you to achieve that goal.

Did You Know?

Cavalry demonstration Fort DavisNHS.

Fort Davis never had a fort wall or palisade. In fact, most western military forts built after the Civil War did not have walls around them. Forts with wooden palisade walls (as depicted in many classic movies) were actually very rare in the West.
