Abstract:

This two-volume report documents an architectural survey of 102 buildings and structures constructed from 1964 to 1974 at Fort Riley, Kansas. Volume 1 includes an analysis of the eligibility of these buildings and structures to the National Register of Historic Places NRHP and satisfies Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended. Volume 2 contains actual building forms and its access is controlled by Fort Riley for security reasons. During the covered period, Fort Rileys primary mission was training recruits for deployment to South Vietnam. As a result, the relevant theme developed for determining historical significance at Fort Riley is Recruit Training for Ground Combat in Vietnam. Of the facilities inventoried, none achieved significance under this theme, and therefore no facilities were determined to be eligible to the NRHP. However, a group of ten facilities associated with training ranges may be significant under this theme and need to be evaluated as component parts of range sites. The remaining facilities inventoried and evaluated at Fort Riley are support structures that are not directly related to the theme of Recruit Training for Ground Com-bat in Vietnam and are not a property type eligible under this theme.
