Historic Properties Management Plan (HPMP)

Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and Middle Delaware National Scenic River » Historic Properties Management Plan (HPMP) » Document List

The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (DEWA) is creating a Historic Properties Management Plan (HPMP).

The purpose of the project is to develop and adopt a strategy for the long-term management of all the historic buildings at DEWA. The number and condition of the historic structures exceeds the park's funding and maintenance capabilities. A Historic Properties Management Plan is needed to guide NPS in making strategic, prioritized maintenance and preservation decisions for the approximately 600 potentially historic buildings remaining in the park.
