Camp Santanoni Historic Area - Draft Unit Management Plan
2015 Draft Unit Management Plan Revision
This revised Camp Santanoni Historic Area updates and builds on the foundation laid in 2000 when the Camp Santanoni Historic Area was created and the initial UMP approved. The purpose of this plan is to address the unique needs of the Area, to preserve the historic fabric of the site, and to respond to events which have subsequently transpired such as the loss of the Farm Complex Dairy Barn which was a significant symbolic and interpretive component of the site. This document also reflects an attempt to learn from and build on the experience after the Historic Area was created in 2000.
