Abstract : This document presents a historic context, integrity analysis, and evaluation for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) of the World War I era rifle range at the Camp Sherman Joint Training Center, Ohio. The report meets the requirements in the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) for federal agencies to address their cultural resources defined as any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure, or object. Identification of potentially significant properties is achieved only through a survey and evaluation to associate a property within a larger historic context. The Camp Sherman Rifle Range was constructed in 1917 for training soldiers in preparation for deployment to European battlefields. This function only lasted until the 1918 Armistice, but the range has been used by the Ohio Army National Guard for training over the decades since. It is the recommendation of this current survey that the 452-acre Camp Sherman Rifle Range (Camp Sherman Joint Training Center) is recommended not eligible to the NRHP due to a significant loss of integrity.
