Cultural landscape report Fort Ontario State Historic Site, Oswego, New York / by Robert J. Hetzler.
This Cultural Landscape Report documents the changes in the landscape at the Fort Ontario State Historic Site in Oswego, New York. The Fort Ontario State Historic Site is the location of Fort Ontario, a nineteenth century five bastioned fortification used to defend the mouth of the Oswego River. Throughout its history, the fort was used as a defensive installation, a training installation, and housed refugees from the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. The report consists of three sections: Site History, Existing Conditions, and Analysis and Evaluation. Site History was compiled into five historic periods and records the evolution of the landscape and the features associated with the site during each period. Existing Conditions identifies all features within the site in 2002. Analysis and Evaluation compares and evaluates existing features to their historic condition. A final analysis is provided to determine the overall historic integrity of the site based on standards developed by the United States Department of the Interior. This report was compiled through a joint agreement between the Central Region office of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
