Abstract:

Congress codified the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 NHPA, to provide guidelines and requirements for preserving tangible elements of the nation s past. This was done primarily through the creation of the National Register of Historic Places NRHP. Through Sections 110 and 106 of the NHPA, federal agencies are required to address their cultural resources, which are defined as any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure, or object. This document contains the nomination form and all supporting documentation for listing the William Barstow Mansion property, located at 300 Steamboat Road, Kings Point, in Nassau County, New York, on the NRHP. The property is considered historically significant on a statewide level as a reminder of the Golden Age of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The property consists of two contributing features the William Barstow Mansion and garage which retain their integrity from the period of significance, 1915 1960. The property is part of the McNulty Campus of the United States Merchant Marine Academy and currently serves as the American Merchant Marine Museum. It was listed on 29 August 2014 as NRHP 14000539.
