Historic Resources Survey and Evaluation, Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, New York (Final)
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has completed the Survey and Evaluation Plan for Historic Resources at Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station (ARS), New York. This historic properties survey was developed in response to a historic context data gap identified during the development of the Cold War Resources Survey and Evaluation for the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, New York in 2005 (Brown 2005).
The objective of the survey included in this plan was to identify the number of properties that have reached 50 years of age, or are rapidly approaching that mark. The period of study chosen was from 1952 to 1966. The objective of the evaluation included in this plan was to then evaluate these properties for their significance within the established historic context(s).
It was determined during the course of this survey and evaluation that 46 properties associated with 3 themes relating to the Military Aviation historic context exist at Niagara Falls ARS. These themes are Training (Sustained Forces), Military Hangars, and Family Housing. Properties associated with these themes were evaluated further to determine their significance within the theme and their contribution to the theme. There are also six properties strictly associated with the Strategic Missile Defense theme, which is part of the Cold War historic context. These properties were evaluated in this survey to determine whether they were associated with other contexts, but no other contexts were identified. The significance of these properties within the Cold War context was evaluated in Cold War Resources Survey and Evaluation for the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, New York (Brown 2005).
There were no buildings, structures, sites, or objects identified at the ARS that were considered eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (herein referred to as the National Register). Details on the themes are presented in Section 3, and the evaluation of significance and integrity is provided in Section 4.
