Abstract: Congress codified the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA), to provide guidelines and requirements for preserving tan-gible elements of the nation’s past. This was done primarily through the creation of the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Through Sections 110 and 106 of the NHPA, federal agencies are required to address their cultural resources, which are defined as any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure, or object. This document contains all supporting documentation and photos for nomination of the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) Historic District to the NRHP. The USMMA is the nation’s only federally-owned educational facility for the advanced training of merchant mariners. This work determined the USMMA Historic District has two periods of significance: 1912-1941 (Gold Coast Era) and 1942–1969 (USMMA Design and Development). The 42-acre district consists of a contributing landscape and 38 contributing buildings, structures, and objects. The district is historically significant on a national level under National Register Criterion A as a reminder of the “Golden Age” of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Criterion C is met through the design of the buildings that survive on the district’s grounds. The district was listed by the NRHP in August 2014 as #14000538. NOTE: This file is large.
