Preservation Maryland is seeking proposals from qualified consulting firms to inventory the historic resources and cultural landscape of Fort Tonoloway, located within Maryland's Fort Tonoloway State Park; conduct military terrain analysis (KOCOA); and develop an archeological research design to inform future research and preservation planning.
The site of the historic fort is believed within the boundaries of Fort Tonoloway State Park which is owned by the Maryland Park Service. The precise location of the fort is unknown and the park has been closed to the public since the mid-1990s.
Details of the project are shown in the scope of work. The project will be developed and deliverables produced during the period May 2019 through August 2020.
