Public Meeting to Discuss General Management Plan
Contact: Debbie Conway, Superintendent, 315-336-3113
The National Park Service has published the Fort Stanwix National Monument Draft General Management Plan/Draft Environmental Impact Statement and is making the document available for public comment. The plan provides alternatives for the park’s management for the next 15 to 20 years. A public meeting to obtain comments on the study was held on October 23, at 7:00 p.m. in the Common Council Chambers at City Hall, 198 N Washington Street, Rome, NY. All are welcome.
Did You Know?
Fort Stanwix has two names. Named for Gen. John Stanwix, this was the fort's name under the British. When rebuilt by the Americans, it was then named for Gen. Phillip Schuyler. However, there were several other Fort Schuylers in New York at that time, so the name never stuck due to the confusion.
