Abstract : The history and significance of Barksdale Air Force Base (BAFB), LA, was recognized when a national historic district was created by the State of Louisiana in 1992. The historic district encompasses many different building types with varying maintenance issues associated with age and use. These problems are compounded by the unique maintenance and repair procedures that must be followed to retain the historic qualities of these properties. To assist in district preservation, BAFB requested that the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories (USACERL) develop a maintenance plan for the historic district. Researchers analyzed building documentation such as base histories and the National Register nomination to provide the background necessary to develop building inventory forms and field inventory procedures and to prepare an installation history. Researchers then developed a computerized data management system. Photos and floor plans were generated electronically to be incorporated into the management system. This Historic District Overview and Maintenance Management Plan at Barksdale Air Force Base resulted in a comprehensive inventory of the properties within the district as well as a detailed analysis of the properties.
