dc.description.abstract Although the GRC National Historical Park, Vincennes, Indiana, has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1966, its development as an Historic Designed Landscape had never been thoroughly researched. Archival research and a field survey of the site evaluated the existing conditions of the grounds and structures to determine their historical significance, integrity and physical condition.The George Rogers Clark Memorial, the park grounds, and other structures and features in and near the park setting were determined to be a historic designed landscape that used formal, classical design principles in a response to the City Beautiful Movement, popular at the beginning of this century, to memorialize the achievements of a man and people significant to our national history.An analysis comparing the historic plans and designers' intent for the park to the existing conditions has resulted in a rehabilitation recommendation for the park that includes the process for returning the park to its original design and an advocation for the development of the historic park setting.
