C100 Comments On Walter Reed Small Area Plan

Loretta Neumann

First, we want to stress that this site has great local as well as national historical significance. Second, the historical significance of WRAMC site is not limited to its function as an Army medical hospital and research facility that opened in 1909. Third, we wish to acknowledge and thank Tim Dennee, HPO architectural historian and preservation planner who has worked both thoughtfully and diligently with the Army, ACHP, and consulting parties on historic preservation issues at Walter Reed and to develop the programmatic agreement.Fourth, as Mr. Dennee’s report notes, there are also other historic properties that will be transferred to the Department of State on about 43 acres on the west side of Walter Reed.
