Website National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program
Ascending to 14,410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier stands as an icon in the Washington landscape. An active volcano, Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous U.S.A., spawning five major rivers. Designated a national park in 1899, Mount Rainier is significant for its archeological, historical, cultural, and natural features.
Two interns are sought to update, expand, and revise the National Historic Landmark District (NHLD) for Mount Rainier National Park, and will seek concurrence from the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. All structures determined eligible for the NHLD will also be added to the List of Classified Structures database. The project will be led by Mount Rainier staff who meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Professional Qualification Standards.
The NHLD was designated in 1997. Structures included were based on a Historic Structure Inventory done in 1982. Research at the park over the last 20-plus years has provided new information that should be included in the NHLD so that the document truly reflects the district’s significance. It is necessary to periodically update the NHLD to assure that structures and landscapes that were overlooked in the original survey or that are now eligible for inclusion in the NHLD are added, and those that either no longer exist or no longer retain integrity are removed. The nomination is a critical document for managing the park’s historic properties, and it allows the park to meet the requirements of DO 28 and Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
Two positions of varying length are available.
