The Cultural Landscape Report Camp Curry Historic District was finalized in May 2010. A Cultural Landscape Report (CLR) documents the history, significance and treatment of a cultural landscape. A CLR evaluates the history and integrity of the landscape including any changes to its geographical context, features, materials, and use. A CLR can provide managers, curators and others with information needed to make management decisions.
