The Northeast Region History Program provides guidance and assistance to parks and programs within the National Park system for resource management and interpretation. Through this, we aim to bridge the practices of preservation professionals in documenting and conserving important resources and public encounters with the place, power, and practice of history. We work with partners and communities to think about and reconsider the role of the past in our individual and collective lives.
Park history studies
Support background research and oral histories on National Park units within the Northeast Region, rooted in recent scholarship, to provide historical overviews and evaluate cultural resources within historic contexts. We partner with local communities and academic institutions to conduct this research, and support National Parks to share this information with the public.
