Summary

At the request of the Presidio Trust of San Francisco, California, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collections (MCX-CMAC), located at the St. Louis District, assessed archaeological collections and associated documentation generated from archaeological investigations conducted within the boundaries of the Presidio of San Francisco and preformed an architectural evaluation of its current collections facility (Building 230). MCX-CMAC staff assessed 82.2 cubic feet from Presidio Trust artifact collections and an unknown amount of associated documentation.

Both the artifact and record collections require complete rehabilitation to comply with federal regulation 36 CFR Part 79, Curation of Federally-Owned and Administered Archeological Collections. Additionally, because Building 230 will be demolished in the next 10 years, MCX-CMAC also evaluated three additional buildings (40, 41, and 1287) for possible use as potential long-term collections repositories. MCX-CMAC provided the Presidio Trust with a conceptual design for physical improvements to Building 230 that would be necessary for the proper curation of the archaeological collections for the next 10 years.
