Surrender Site Transfer to Saratoga National Historical Park
On October 17, 2019, at the Dedication Ceremony, FOSB presented the Saratoga Surrender Site to the Saratoga National Historical Park (SNHP) and the National Park Service (NPS). Since then NPS has been entrenched in the governmental process of accepting our donation while we, the Friends of Saratoga Battlefield, have continued to develop the Site. Recent improvements include commissioning the building and installation of two cannon carriages as well as planting dozens of trees to enhance the landscape.
Recently FOSB executed the Donation Agreement which transfers title to all the improvements made on the Site by FOSB through the generous support of our community. In early March, Open Space Institute, a land conservation organization, is scheduled to complete the transfer to the Park.
Thank you to FOSB Members and all involved in seeing this significant project through its various stages over many years. We did it !!
