Integrated Cultural Resources Management Plan, Joint Base McGuire Dix Lakehurst, New Jersey


The Integrated Cultural Resource Management Plan (ICRMP) provides an internal compliance and management tool that enables the conservation of historic properties and cultural resources (CR) in concert with the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL) mission. The ICRMP integrates the legal requirements for CR preservation with ongoing mission activities and ensures that mission essential activities are fully supported by the management policies and procedures outlined within. The ICRMP is based on information derived from historical, archaeological, ethnographic and architectural investigations on JB MDL. It specifies management strategies for known historic properties and methods for identifying and evaluating as yet unidentified cultural resources.

This ICRMP is the implementing document for the JB MDL CR management program during 2014-2019. It outlines specific procedures for consultation with the New Jersey Historic Preservation Office (NJ HPO), the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), the National Park Service (NPS), federally recognized Native American tribes, and other potential partners in cultural resource management.

The NHPA requires that federal installations identify, evaluate the historic significance of and nominate significant historic properties to the NR. The historic properties identified on JB MDL include eligible and potentially eligible archaeological sites and historic architecture (Table 1.1). The properties include one NHL (Hangar No. One), two NR listed properties (Hangar No. One and the Hanover Furnace Site), three NR eligible historic districts (Lighter than Air (LTA) Historic District, Boeing Michigan Aeronautical Research Center (BOMARC) Missile Site, and the Scott Plaza Historic District), four NR eligible historic archaeological sites (28-Bu-458, 28-Bu-459, 28-Bu-473, and 28-Bu-542), and six individually NR eligible buildings (3135, 5353, 3209, 9004, Building 120, SAGE Complex). One additional archaeological site known as the Cherry Valley Tavern (28-Bu-413) was found eligible for the NR and excavated in 1993. Two additional historic properties known as Quarters 1 and Quarters 2, both mid-nineteenth century farmhouses were identified as potentially eligible for historic architecture and archaeology (Zerbe 1990). Two additional historic architectural resources found eligible for the NR and listed with the NJ HPO are no longer extant. They include a Railroad Historic District (Buildings 3103-3106, 3111, 3115, 3116, 3123 and 3125) and Building 9726. JB MDL cultural resources also include 91.76 cubic feet of artifacts recovered from archaeological investigations within the McGuire and Dix areas.
