This report presents a photographic recordation of archetypal buildings, structures, and equipment of the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant LCAAP, Independence, Missouri, originally constructed by the World War II-era Ordnance Department as a government-owned, contractor-operated GOCO industrial facility. The report is a continuation of a larger project that entailed completion of a national context for the World War II Ordnance Departments GOCO industrial facilities of 1939-1945 Kane 1995, as well as detailed investigations into the history of several former World War II-era Ordnance Department GOCO industrial facilities including present-day Badger, Holston, Indiana, Joliet, Kansas, Lake City, Radford, Ravenna, and Twin Cities army ammunition plants along with photographic documentation of the same sample installations. The two primary goals of the larger project were to investigate and document World War II and pre-World War II buildings, structures, and equipment now under the jurisdiction of Army Materiel Command AMC as part of a Legacy Resource demonstration program of assistance to small installations and to complete the mitigation efforts stipulated in a 1993 Programmatic Agreement among the AMC, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and multiple State Historic Preservation Officers concerning a program to cease maintenance, excess, and dispose of particular properties.
