Abstract : This study was conducted to determine the eligibility of several Nike sites within the boundaries of the Angeles National Forest in relation to the National Register of Historic Places. The sites investigated were Mt.Gleason (LA-04-L), Barley Flats (LA-09-L), Los Pinetos (LA-94-C&L), and Magic Mountain/Lang (LA-98-C&L). Information gathered as part of this study has made it possible to make a positive recommendation of National Register of Historic Places eligibility for the Mt. Gleason and Los Pinetos installations. These sites (which are less then 50 years old) were constructed during the period 1954-1956, and exhibits features of exceptional importance which are unique among recorded sites in the Los Angeles area. Finally, it was determined that the Nike installations located at Barley Flats and at Magic Mountain/Lang were not eligible to the National Register of Historic Places.
