Subject: Report of Non-Federal Lands in this Park

Immediately upon receipt of advice from Mr. Rowell last Wednesday that The House Committee on Appropriations had requested a report from each Park to show the non- federal acreage, estimated value, and number of land owners, we started collecting data to assemble the attached report. This report represents all land owners of record within the exterior boundaries of this Park. Park Ranger Daugherty spent about three days collecting the data from the land office in Manassas, and Park Naturalist McCutchen assisted him one day. With the constant subdividing which has taken place during the past few years, our records of the original tracts were out of date.

It will be noted that the present inholdings total 271; and the total acreage is 1,687.85.

The estimated cost was arrived at through discussions with local real estate dealers, appraisals made by county officials for tax assessment purposes, and our own knowledge of real estate sales. In some instances the estimated values were purely a guess, as time would not permit a personal inspection of each of the tracts involved.
