Abstract: Abstract: Federal preservation laws require federal agencies to identify, protect, and maintain their historic buildings and structures. The German POW Stonework Historic District, which is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, recognizes and protects the stonework created by German prisoners of war (POWs) from 1942 through 1946. All structures, especially historic ones, require regular, planned, and appropriate maintenance and repair. After identifying issues with the condition of the historic stonework, architects at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center–Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDCCERL) requested technical assistance from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) on behalf of U.S. Army Garrison Fort Leonard Wood (FLW). Two experts from NCPTT made a site visit to inspect the stonework, taking samples and photos. Their technical report, made part of this ERDC-CERL contract report, provides recommendations for preservation or restoration of the stonework, following the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. The NCPTT report also summarizes various threats to the condition of both stone and mortar. FLW’s Directorate of Public Works will use the report’s recommendations to correct existing issues and to maintain the historic stonework.
