National Park Service
Scholarship is critical to the work that is accomplished at Martin Van Buren National Historic Site. The need for current, factual, balanced historical research is, of course, essential to the preservation of the physical resources of the site. It is even more important to the understanding and interpretion of President Van Buren and the ante bellum period of American history. National Park Service professionals and noted national scholars have conducted many of the studies. Much of the research is arranged through the National Park Service's agreement with the Organization of American Historians. Some of the more recent studies can be accessed below:
