Excerpt from Underground Railroad: Special Resource Study, Management Concepts, Environmental Assessment; September 1995

This Special Resource Study involved consultation with 34 states, two territories, hundreds of interested individuals and organizations around the country, as well as connections with Canada and the Caribbean. The study considered 380 suggestions about potential sites of significance to the Underground Railroad story. Additional research has identified 42 sites as having the highest potential to meet established national historic landmark criteria for national significance. Detailed descriptions of 13 sites that appear to have the highest potential for preservation and interpretation are provided in the study.

Given the national significance of the story, the need for long-term preservation of resources, the public enjoyment potential, and the current amount of public ownership, the Underground Railroad story could become an example of the new wave national park unit a cooperative or partnership park. Cooperative or partnership efforts, if successful, should reduce nps staffing and development requirements and annual operating costs. There would be minimal acquisition costs when compared to a'new traditional national park unit.

Five alternative concepts have been developed for preserving, commemorating, and interpreting resources associated with the Underground Railroad. Management options for these concepts range from no federal action to the creation of a new national park system unit. All of these concepts, with the exception of no action, are intended to enhance public understanding and appreciation of the Underground Railroad and to preserve its many important resources. A no-action concept is also included to provide a base for comparing existing conditions with the other concepts. It is important to note that while each concept could stand on its own, certain elements could be combined to better serve resource protection and interpretation objectives. The Underground Railroad Advisory Committee, established by Congress to advise the National Park Service on matters related to this project, has recommended that all concepts be pursued simultaneously. Each concept is briefly described below.
