History

Independence National Historical Park (INDE) was authorized by an act of Congress on June 28, 1948, and was formally established on July 4, 1956, “preserving for the benefit of the American people as a national historical park certain historical structures and properties of outstanding and national significance…associated with the American Revolution and the founding and growth of the United States.” Located in the Society Hill, Old City, and Germantown neighborhoods of Philadelphia, Independence National Historical Park encompasses not only such famous sites and artifacts as Independence Hall, Congress Hall, and the Liberty Bell, but over twenty other structures, gardens, squares, and cemeteries. These include the reconstructed Graff house (site where Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence), Franklin Court (site of Benjamin Franklin’s house), Carpenters' Hall (meeting place of the First Continental Congress), and the Deshler-Morris House (where George Washington lived for brief periods in 1793 and 1794).

As stated in the NPS Cultural Resource Management Division’s Guideline (NPS-28), cultural resource management requires research, planning, and stewardship. The development and maintenance of INDE’s sites and objects has required extensive archeological and historical research and detailed planning. INDE’s cultural resource management records, which consist of park superintendent office files, document those processes, as well as the ongoing maintenance of the park. They also document research and archeology performed by park staff and contractors to illuminate park history, specific sites and museum collections, and the people associated with them. Thus the collection includes not only routine records, but special studies and reports on topics from authentic paint and carpets, and historic structures, to the portrait collection at the Second Bank of the United States.

Of particular note is the correspondence of INDE superintendent (1971-1991), Hobart G. Cawood, who presided over the preparations for, and celebrations of the 1976 American Revolution Bicentennial.
 

Scope and Content

Independence National Historical Park Cultural Resource Management Records
1936-2016 and undated (bulk dates: 1960-1998)

Catalog Number: INDE 77171

Volume: 16 LF

Description:
Series I, Development and Maintenance and Series II, History and Archeology of the Cultural Resource Management Collection contain a wide variety of documents including extensive correspondence, both internal and external. There are also reports and research materials including photographs, drawings, and plans; assessments and surveys; contracts, including land acquisition; work orders; and clippings. NPS staff and contractors created these records as part of their day-to-day maintenance and preservation of the park's grounds and buildings. Of particular note are correspondence and clippings reflecting public opinion of park development, especially regarding the move of the Liberty Bell (extensive) and re-construction of the Graff House.

The records in these series provide detailed information on planning and implementing maintenance, construction, and re-construction of buildings and grounds including utilities and HVAC (with attendant contracts); access, traffic abatement and parking; archeology; biographies of people associated with various sites; events such as the 1976 Bicentennial of the American Revolution, including the visit of the Queen of England for the dedication of the Bicentennial Bell; openings and dedications; museum exhibits, acquisitions and loans; and information on artifacts including a 1975 Winterthur “Analysis of the Liberty Bell analytical Laboratory Report #379.”

It should be noted that several subseries have folders marked “Area F” and “Area B.” These designations are from the March 4, 1988 National Register of Historic Places Nomination form for INDE, and refer to specific land parcels within the Park. Area F contains the Welcome Park, the parking garage, City Tavern, and Bond House and is part of the Old City Historic District. Area B contains restored eighteenth century townhouses and Locust Street, the Magnolia Garden, and the Rose Garden.

Organization:
The collection is organized into two series: Series I, Development and Maintenance and Series II, History and Archeology. The collection is arranged by National Park Service File Codes as codified in NPS-19. It uses the code titles found in this document as subseries titles. Due to some inconsistencies in coding, similar documents of interest may be found in Subseries D18, D62 and H30.

Series Descriptions

Series I: Development and Maintenance, 1955-2016
This series documents the planning, development, and management of the cultural assets acquired by the NPS for the creation of Independence National Historical Park. It covers the period 1951- 2000, with the majority of the material coming from the 1970s. Areas of interest include details of the Park's construction projects, documentation of the various signs used in the Park, and correspondence related to various exhibits. This series also includes several oversize items, mostly building and construction plans, which have been filed separately. They are located in Drawer 142, 143, and 165. Their original locations are marked by separation sheets.

The series is organized into ten subseries (A-J).

The subseries are arranged by file code. Within each subseries general correspondence is filed first, followed by any other administrative information, with alphabetically arranged site unit files coming last.

Subseries A: Planning Program Records (D18), 1963-1999
The bulk of this subseries consists of general administrative materials (correspondence, memos, reports, etc.) related to the development of Independence National Historical Park, specifically large projects such as land acquisition, planning for the restortion of historic buildings, demolition of existing non-historic structures, and new facilities. Notable materials include correspondence related to vacating Gatzmer, Leithgow, Orianna, and Water Streets; and the Maintenance Rehabilitation Shop Land Exchange files contain several black and white photographs.

This subseries originally contained several site files; however, these have been relocated to Series II: Subseries F - Historic Sites and Structures Management and Preservation Files (H30) because the files in question are concerned with historic structures.

Subseries B: Planning and Design Project Files (D20), 1962-1994
General correspondence files are followed by alphabetize subject files. The original file code of each subject is noted on the folder.

This subseries consists of materials that were originally encoded D30 - Roads and Trails Files, D46 - Other Buildings Files, and D50 - Record of Service and Utilities. NPS-19 places these files under either D20 - Planning and Design Project Files, or D22 - Construction Program Files. These materials were deemed more suitable for filing under the D20 coding due to their administrative nature.

The materials related to the proposed but never realized Fountain of Freedom/Constitution Memorial are of particular interest. These include correspondence and news clippings that document opposition to the project, as well as general administrative documents such as meeting minutes and internal memoranda.

Subseries C: Construction Programs Files (D22), 1960-1996
This subseries concerns construction programs, both for new buildings and existing sites. Materials of note include Form 10-238s (Development Study packages) that outline potential projects to be undertaken at INDE, Program Change/Innovation Proposals, and correspondence related to the Friends of Independence National Historical Park Museum Internship Program managed by the Museum Branch.

Subseries D: Maintenance Program Records (D24), 1959-1991
This subseries documents park maintenance. Covered topics include faulty heating/cooling systems and the conservation of historical instruments. The bulk of the materials consists of correspondence and memoranda.

Subseries G: Building Files (D34), 1965-1989

Correspondence also covers many different exhibits that were created for the bicentennial celebration and to highligh significant artifacts in the museum collections at INDE. Most heavily covered are the exhibits "Miracle at Philadelphia," and "The Promise of Permanency," which opened in 1987 as part of the Constitutional Bicentennial and have materials scattered throughout the general D6215 files. In addition, the exhibit "Comfortable, Durable & Cheap: Philadelphia Windsor Chairs" is covered in the General Correspondence from 1979.

Subseries J: Signs, Markers, and Memorial Files (D66), 1973-1992
