However, its expenses per visitor hour are very high for such a large park, and will have to be significantly reduced before it can pay its way from user fees. History After the turn-of-the-century, the railroad rerouted its line to another location but retained ownership of the land. In 1916, volcanos seemed rare enough that any erupting in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, were immediately placed in national parks. History Montezuma Castle was proclaimed a national monument in 1906 and has been in Park Service hands since the agency was created. The park consists of the house and several nearby buildings plus 13 acres of land.
What Yosemite's 761,000 acres contain some of the most spectacular valleys and largest trees in the world. Part of it was already a national monument managed by the Forest Service. Improvements The 52,000 federal acres along the road include a visitors center and several campgrounds. To the Park Service's embarrassment, it turned out that Pinckney never lived in the house.

What The 415-mile parkway connects Nashville, Tennessee with Jackson, Mississippi and is supposed to eventually reach another 30 miles to Natchez, Mississippi. While Kaloko-Honokohau is a highly significant piece of Hawaiian history, it is not clearly of national significance.
Some of this land is state or local government, but the Park Service's long-term goal is to acquire much of the private land within the parks. The area might have a tough time paying its way even with a huge reduction in expenses. Moreover, it practically pays its way today and could easily do so with an increase in user fees. The ski area debate was more contentious. Assessment Criteria Pass Doubt Fail Outstanding example X Exceptional value X Superlative opportunities X High integrity X Not adequately represented X Sufficient size X No other agency X Pay its way as is X Pay its way reformed X Unlike the Blue Ridge Parkway, whose uniform design and spectacular scenery make it seem a cohesive whole, the Natchez Trace Parkway seems to be just another highway. Emailed responses have been quick, efficient and helpful.
Moreover, it can easily pay its way. History As developments encroached on the area in the 1980s, South Carolinians, including the spouses of key members of the state's Congressional delegation, worked to save the last remnants of Pinckney's farm. It could easily pay its way out of user fees with moderate budget cuts. Improvements The Park Service has no immediate plans to alter the house. A statue was finally erected in 1949.

Most Americans passed through Seattle and many went to Skagway or Dyee, Alaska, where they started an arduous hike over snowy mountain passes. Improvements The park contains a visitors center and trails and is traversed by highway 101. Management is made infeasible by the difficulty of public access. Its budget will increase slightly in 1995. Tenants will be limited to organizations deemed compatible with the goals of the Park Service.
Improvements Preservation groups supported the Park Service's efforts to expand the park on the condition that most of the park would remain wilderness.

For several years after the centennial, Park Service employees in period costumes recreated the laying of the last rail several times a day for visitors. Parks created between 1940 and 1960 are marginal, while parks created after 1960 are in trouble on both counts. Review the Galápagos Marine Reserve Case Study.

The park expects a nearly 20 percent budget increase by 1995. Improvements When the Park Service took it over, it immediately built numerous roads across the former wildlife refuges and other parklands. Visits, Receipts, and Budget Park Service management is too recent for recreation statistics, but recreation fees will be negligible. Of course, funding it out of user fees would probably lead to new priorities; for example, road maintenance would be much more important than employee housing. Due to competition from new ski resorts, the ski area shut down in 1993. Assessment Criteria Pass Doubt Fail Outstanding example X Exceptional value X Superlative opportunities X High integrity X Not adequately represented X Sufficient size X No other agency X Pay its way as is X Pay its way reformed X Promontory is an outstanding example of American history. In 1957, Congress declared the area, still railroad owned, a historic site.
The O'Neill Foundation protested since it wanted the barn for its activities. Ten years later the park was greatly expanded to its present size. Private offices support flexibility with Tessera casegoods, while the Footings, Strassa, and WaveWorks tables provide unique gathering and meeting spaces.

Improvements The Park Service built a 10,000-square foot visitor center and a separate whale-watching overlook in 1965. This happened with the help of George Miller, a member of the House Interior Committee who represented the district, and William Penn Mott, who was soon to be director of the National Park Service and who happened to be on the board of the Eugene O'Neill Foundation.
