Contact: Eileen Larrabee, 518 486-1868
Officials of the National Park Service (NPS) and the New York State Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation have entered into a cooperative management agreement for the management of Oriskany Battlefield State Historic Site and Steuben Memorial State Historic Site. Under this agreement, Fort Stanwix National Monument staff will provide day-to-day management of the two New York State historic sites. National Park Service park rangers and maintenance employees will work with existing OPRHP employees to provide site maintenance, interpretive and educational programs and other visitor services.
OPRHP will provide $260,200 over five years to the NPS to cover general operating costs such as utilities, supplies and seasonal staff support. The New York State OPRHP sites remain in the ownership of New York State but gain access to the additional resources and expertise of the National Park Service at Fort Stanwix National Monument.
