HISTORICAL & CULTURAL RESOURCES:

Fabyan Point:

Fabyan Point is located within a closed area of the refuge.  When the property was acquired and added to the refuge, it included a handful of old, abandoned cabins.  The refuge removed the cabins in 2015.  Prior to removal, and to comply with the National Historic Preservation Act, proper historical documentation of these resources was completed and a report prepared. That report, with photos and other documents, is available by clicking on the following link.  Click here.  (PDF) 

Margeson Estate

The former Margeson Estate was located in a closed area of the refuge.  The main house, which was later used by Pease Air Force Base as a Sportsman's Lodge, was removed by the refuge in 2015.  The related caretaker's cottage was also removed at that time.  Prior to removal, and to comply with the National Historic Preservation Act, proper historical documentation of these resources was completed and a report prepared.  That report, with photos and schematics, is available by clicking on the following link.  Click here.  (PDF)

Former Weapons Storage Area

The refuge removed a number of old structures, including a handful of concrete block buildings and a water tower, from the former Weapons Storage Area (WPA) in 2015.  The WPA, which is located within a closed area of the refuge, was part of the former Pease Air Force Base.  A number of concrete bunkers, which were used by the Air Force to store munitions, remain within the WPA.  The bunkers, which many people find a fascinating relic of the Cold War, can be seen by refuge visitors who participate in the regularly scheduled Behind the Scenes tours.  Prior to removal, and to comply with the National Historic Preservation Act, proper documentation of these historic resources was completed and a report prepared.
