Comprehensive Management Plan: Adaptive Reuse and Other Provisions
Below you will find the documentation related to the Society’s effort to consider adaptive reuse. The National Park Service has asked for details for how the Society arrived at its cost estimates for reuse, but we have not received this information. If you have ideas about how to pursue adaptive reuse of the Cavalry Barracks for the Society’s new visitor center, we would like to hear them.
