First State National Monument has determined the need for a Historic Structures Report (HSR) for the 1857 Sheriff¿s House and Jail in New Castle, Delaware in order to broaden NPS and public understanding of its developmental history, historic integrity, and character defining features. The HSR will serve as the foundation document for the development of the interpretation of the historic structure for the general public and will also guide the ultimate treatment and use for the structure, providing the information necessary to preserve and protect the building¿s significant character-defining features and history. The public will be given a briefing on the results of the HSR as part of the public process for announcing the ultimate treatment of the building by the NPS. In addition, given the special relationship between the University of Delaware¿s Historic Preservation Program and the First State National Monument, the ¿Developmental History¿ of the HSR and the HSR in its entirety will serve as a companion piece to physical tours of the Sheriff¿s House and Jail for students enrolled in the program to best understand the methodology and proper components of a Historic Structures Report. This project will prepare the ¿Developmental History¿ section of the HSR, complete with a ¿Management Summary,¿ in accordance with National Park Service Director¿s Order #28, Chapter 8. This section of the HSR shall document the evolution of the structure through archival research and physical investigations. The research will greatly build upon the ten page ¿A Documentary History of the Sheriff¿s House and Jail, New Castle, Delaware,¿ written by members of the University of Delaware¿s Center for Historic Architecture and Design in 1997 and will tap into archival collections in repositories in Delaware and elsewhere in the northeast U.S. in order to go beyond a basic primary and secondary resource search. The research will culminate in a document of publishable quality that will be incorporated as a major section into the HSR as a whole at a later date. RECIPIENT INVOLVEMENT OAH agrees to: a) Produce a comprehensive ¿Developmental History¿ section of the HSR for the Sheriff¿s House, complete with a ¿Management Summary,¿ in accordance with National Park Service Director¿s Order #28, Chapter 8. b) Engage an appropriate architectural historian(s) scholar(s) to undertake the work and act as the liaison between the NPS and the scholar(s); c) Work with NPS to finalize a detailed scope of work, based on Article I of this task agreement, for the Architectural Historian(s) to follow in order to complete the ¿Developmental History¿ section of the Historic Structures Report, complete with a ¿Management Summary;¿ d) Ensure that the document is prepared as a scholarly report meeting the standards of the architectural history profession and the NPS through project management, including coordination of agency and peer review comments and provision of editorial services; e) Produce the final publication quality manuscript in PDF format for purposes of internet access, plus ten (10) bound copies. f) Participate in a project kick-off meeting and a fifty percent (50%) draft review with NPS staff and the researcher(s) to help the project team finalize the approach to the project and provide valuable input into guiding the latter half of the project to a successful conclusion. g) Make the report available to its membership, as well as the public more broadly, and promote the report within its professional networks so as to make the report as widely available as possible to scholars of American Architectural History, so that those scholars and teachers may use the report¿s findings in their teaching and writing, to the benefit of not only the scholarly community but students at many levels. Promote, to its membership and through its professional networks, any use by NPS of the report in its management and planning, so as to draw attention to its continued efforts to make the presentation and practice of American Architectural History within NPS as informed, current, and professional as possible, which is a core mission of the OAH. NATIONAL PARK SERVICE INVOLVEMENT Substantial involvement on the part the National Park Service is anticipated for the successful completion of the objectives to be funded by this award. In particular, the National Park Service will be responsible for the following: a.) Work with the OAH to finalize a detailed scope of work, based on Article I of this task agreement, for the Architectural Historian(s) to follow in order to complete the ¿Developmental History¿ section of the Historic Structures Report, complete with a ¿Management Summary;¿ b.) Work with the OAH in selecting the architectural historian scholar(s) to conduct the research; c.) Provide the architectural historian(s) with access to park records, reports and databases; familiarize the scholar(s) with the Sheriff¿s House; and work with the scholar(s) to select archival depositories likely to yield the most useful information for the project; d.) Review the progress of the research to ensure relevance and quality; e.) Via the completion of the Sheriff¿s House Historic Structures Report, Part 1, in its entirety, distribute the ¿Developmental History¿ section as part of the HSR and make the research available to park managers and the general public for use in management and planning; h) Organize a project kick-off meeting and a fifty percent (50%) draft review with NPS staff and the researcher(s) to help the project team finalize the approach to the project and provide valuable input into guiding the latter half of the project to a successful conclusion. f.) Share and promote the completed HSR with related and relevant NPS units.
