Minute Man National Historical Park Revitalized Using Great American Outdoors Funds

Minute Man National Historical Park (Massachusetts) recently had visitors in Congresswoman Lori Trahan, a member of the House Natural Resources Committee’s National Parks Subcommittee, and Chairman of the Subcommittee, Congressman Joe Neguse, as per the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association.

“It was my pleasure to show Chairman Neguse the tremendous benefits of the Great American Outdoors Act during our visit to Minute Man National Historical Park,” said Congresswoman Trahan. 

“The staff have done an amazing job utilizing these funds to revitalize the park so future generations can enjoy learning about our nation’s history – from the shot heard round the world to the Wayside and so much more.”

“I was delighted to join my colleague Representative Trahan on a tour of the Minute Man National Historical Park. From Colorado to Massachusetts, our country’s national parks are national treasures. It is always a joy to see how park staff work to keep these special places open and bustling.” said National Parks Subcommittee Chairman Neguse.

Park staff joined Trehan and Neguse for a visit, including Park Superintendent Simone Monteleone, Visitor Service Manager Jennifer Pierce, and Park Ranger and Historical Interpreter Jim Hollister.

During the visit, Trahan and Neguse saw how the park used the $27 million from the Great American Outdoors Act funding. 

The bipartisan legislation, supported by lawmakers in 2020, allocated a historic investment in national parks and public lands to help address the maintenance backlog. At the time of passage, Minute Man had an estimated $12.4 million maintenance backlog. 

Trahan has used her role as a member of the National Parks Subcommittee to fight for funding for Minute Man National Historical Park and Lowell National Historical Park. 

When the Great American Outdoors Act funding passed in July of 2020, Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark and Rep. Trahan touted the importance of the legislation at Minute Man National Historical Park.
