Cold War Era Historical Resources
NASA Ames Research Center and
Crows Landing Flight Facility

Cold War Surveys were conducted at NASA Ames Research Center and Crows Landing Flight Facility to determine if any assets or structures located at these facilities might be eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, based on criteria set forth in the Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Identification and Evaluation.

Criteria Consideration G, which was used for this survey and evaluation, states that "a property achieving significance within the last fifty years is eligible if it is of exceptional importance." None of the properties in this study were found to be eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places based on National Register Criteria G (36 CFR Part 60.4).
