Pagination or Media Count:
The architecture of U.S. Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia Quantico comprises a unique cultural resource for the Department of Defense. Quantico employs a large number of historically significant facilities in its daily operations. Within the installation, historic districts have been identified under historic themes Aviation, Education, First Permanent Construction, Lustron Housing, Naval Clinic Complex, and African American Barracks. Quanticos historic facilities and districts are subject to provisions of The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 that require all Federal agencies to duly consider the effects of any proposed action on properties listed or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. To maintain the integrity of Quanticos historic properties, maintenance, repair, alterations, and required retrofits should follow The Secretary of the Interiors Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties. Retrofits for accessibility must conform to passages of the Americans With Disabilities Act and Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards pertaining to historic properties. This report compiles preservation guidelines for Quantico personnel involved in any facility specification, expansion, or retrofit that may affect historic character. In general, repair is preferred over replacement. Where historic features are missing or irreparable, guidelines are specified for replacement of historically compatible items, materials, and colors.
