Abstract: This document is a historic context of the former Weldon Spring Ordnance Works (WSOW) constructed in St. Charles County, Missouri in 1941. The WSOW manufactured TNT and ONT for the World War II effort from 1941 to I 945. After I 946, the War Assets Administration sold off portions of the WSOW to the Missouri Conservation Commission, the University of Missouri, the Atomic Energy Commission, the Francis Howell School District, and to Joseph Koralchik. The Army retained the central TNT manufacturing area for use as a training facility. This Army facility is now known as the Weldon Spring Training Area (WSTA) and is controlled by the 891 Regional Readiness Command (89th RRC) in Wichita, Kansas. In September 2004, the 89th RRC retained ERDC-CERL to write a historic context for the former WSOW. This historic context satisfies Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 as amended (NHPA), and no further architectural or archeological work is necessary at the WSTA by the 89th RRC to satisfy the requirements of the NHPA.
