RESEARCH AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (continued)
Cultural Resource Management
Cultural resource management needs primarily focus on maintenance of the fort and salt works replicas, the memorial's natural and cultural collection, its photograph and slide collections, and library collection, including 156 rare volumes. Three archeological excavations have failed to reveal conclusive evidence of the original fort structure, but they have revealed the location of a 19th century home and artifacts of 19th century settlement. Of the people who have worked at the park over the years, each has their own theory and opinion about the possible existence and location of any evidence of the original fort.
