Abstract (in English)

The Department of the Army is responsible for preservation of the historic resources on the approximately 12 million acres of land it controls in the United States. Like all federal departments, the Army must ensure that its activities are in compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Currently, there are almost 80 historic places on Army property listed on the National Register. These include individual buildings, structures and sites, as well as districts, containing almost 5000 buildings.
