Abstract: The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) is located in Kings Point, New York. The Academy is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (#14000538). The Historic District contains contributing mansions constructed during the Gold Coast Era and Academy buildings constructed from 1942 to 1969. This report identifies several historic component landscapes within USMMA, and makes recommendations for their maintenance and preservation. This report establishes landscape guidelines to aid USMMA in preservation of the Historic District. This management plan inventories the existing cultural landscape at the USMMA, and it includes recommendations for managing the historic landscape in the future. The contributing landscapes are identified in the study, and their existing conditions discussed. Treatment recommendations for preserving and rehabilitating the landscapes are provided. This document meets the requirements for federal agencies to address their cultural resources which are defined as any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure, or object. Especially relevant is Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act, which requires federal agencies to inventory and evaluate their cultural resources.
