This Cultural Landscape Report identifies the historic landscape at Oregon Caves National Monument and documents its characteristics. The purpose of the report is to identify historic landscape resources for future evaluation. This is a final step in the development of guidelines and recommendations for preservation, rehabilitation, maintenance, and interpretation of those resources. Project boundaries are based primarily on the proposed Oregon Caves Historic District boundaries, yet are drawn to reflect the physiographic characteristics defining the district. This document is a technical supplement and does not replace a standard cultural landscape report. Additional work and review will be required prior to development of specific recommendations and/or design concepts. Both the report and future projects resulting from the report's information will receive review from appropriate local, state and federal entities.
This document was developed in the Pacific Northwest Regional Office by the Cultural Resources Division. Previous documents addressing historic resources at the monument include: Historic American Building Survey documentation for Oregon Caves Chateau, Oregon Caves Chalet, and Oregon Caves Ranger Residence, 1989; and Oregon Caves Concession Cottages, 1988. The historic district has been nominated for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
