Law 93-431). Only three of those properties are owned by the federal government; the remaining sites remain in municipal or private ownership under cooperative agreements between the National Park Service (NPS) and the site owners. Boston NHP was one of the first ¿partnership¿ parks, presenting a number of issues both in terms of working with multiple partners, each of which came to the partnership with their own goals, as well as changing the perception of the NPS hierarchy with respect to working closely with sites not owned by the federal government. The park concept was first developed in the late 1950s by the Boston National Historic Sites Commission, a body created by Congress to develop an approach to the question of historic preservation in Boston and the surrounding area The purpose of this study is to document the establishment and management of the park (1950s to 2013) and to place it within the larger contexts of public park management and historic preservation inside and outside the National Park System. This study will serve an ongoing guide to park management about the history of park issues over time and how these have changed depending on the context of the time. The public purpose and benefit of this project is to assist the park and its multiple constituencies to understand the historical contexts for many of the land management issues that continue to generate debate within these communities. In addition to the report, which will be made available online, this project includes а public workshop at the conclusion of the study to engage these multiple constituencies in conversations about this history and its ongoing relevance to the management of the park.

Produce one unbound and fifteen bound copies of the final Administrative History; е) Participate in а one-day workshop with park staff and community stakeholders to share the results of the study so that the information сап be incorporated, as appropriate, into public programming at the park. 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.
