Abstract: As an inventory and evaluation of the historic landscape and landscape features of Randolph Air Force Base (AFB), Texas, this document meets the requirement for federal agencies to address their cultural resources, defined as any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure, or object. Randolph AFB’s historic landscape is unique in its design and implementation. The base was planned and designed as an ideal “Air City” to meet flying training requirements while providing a pleasant place for airmen and their families to live. The landscape reflects early twentieth-century planning ideas that grouped functional uses together in geometrically distinct patterns. Implementing these design principles at Randolph Field resulted in a main circle surrounded by a grid of streets, with two flight lines on the east and west sides. This report identifies several historic component landscapes within Randolph AFB and makes recommendations on their maintenance and preservation. The component landscapes are the administration area; the warehouse and shop area; the base support areas such as the Chapel, hospital, former Post School, and former Post Exchange; the residential areas of the officers’ housing, NCO quarters, and former barracks; the former Cadet Complex; and the flight lines.
