Abstract: The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy 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 con-structed during the Gold Coast Era and the Academy buildings con-structed in 1942 to 1969. All buildings require regular planned maintenance and repair. The most notable cause of historic building ele-ment failure and/or decay is not the fact the historic building is old, but ra-ther it is caused by an incorrect or inappropriate repair and/or basic neglect of the historic building fabric. This document is a maintenance manual compiled with as-is conditions of construction materials of build-ings at the Academy. The Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties on preservation, rehabilitation, and re-pair per material are discussed to provide the Academy a guide to main-tain these historic buildings. Materials included in this report are concrete, wood, brick, metal, roofing materials, stucco, and mechanical system ele-ments. All mentioned repair procedures are from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA): Historic Preservation Technical Procedures and/or the National Park Service’s series of Preservation Briefs. This report satis-fies Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, as amended.
