Abstract: Fort Riley is responsible for maintaining and protecting approximately 290 historic structures, all of which contribute in some way to the significance of the three Fort Riley Historic Districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Virtually all of Fort Riley's historic structures are in active use 2.nd require continuous maintenance or rehabilitation in order to keep them functioning in support of the mission while remaining presentable to project a positive installation image. Some historic buildings at Fort Riley have unsightly stains forming on their stone surfaces. The identity of the stains was unknown and therefore untreatable. A study of the stains and appropriate removal techniques were needed to help Fort Riley to preserve facility aesthetics while complying with requirements of the National Historic Preservation Act. The objectives of this study were to (1) identify the stains, (2) establish and test safe and effective methodology for removing the stain from a small sampling of historic buildings at Fort Riley, and (3) provide recommendations for appropriate preservation and maintenance treatments of Fort Riley limestone masonry for future management.
