Abstract: The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA) provides guidelines and requirements for preserving physical elements of the nation’s history. The act requires identifying and managing cultural resources. Resources deemed historically significant can be recorded in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Beale AFB was converted to an Air Force installation in 1948 from Camp Beale, which was founded to support the Army in 1942. The objective of this study was to research the history of Beale AFB in the 20th century and to inventory and assess up to 60 buildings that are 40 years or older and constructed between 1942 and 1978. This report includes recommendations for eligibility to the NRHP that will be sub-mitted to the California State Historic Preservation Officer (CA SHPO). The total number of buildings surveyed and documented is 33. This survey finds that none of the buildings evaluated are individually eligible for the National Register of Historic Places under any of the National Register Criterions. The built environment of Beale AFB has been significantly modified over time from its beginnings as Camp Beale, to the build up for the Cold War missions located there, and modernization of the late 1990s and early 2000s.
