Ramsour’s Mill Battleground Strategic Plan

On September 29, 2007, a strategic planning workshop was conducted to assess the status of the Ramsour’s Mill Battleground preservation efforts to date and to
determine key program areas for the future of the site – Preservation of battlefield property, Stewardship and management of the battlefield property as a cultural and historical landscape resource, Education and interpretation of the historical events and the land upon which they took place, and the need for positive and proactive Communication to create consensus and build partnerships with citizens of Lincoln County and other key stakeholders.

For each of these key areas a long range goal was determined along with five-year strategic objective(s) and specific action items to achieve these goals and objectives. In addition, key partnerships and key external factors that could
potential affect the achievement of these goals were identified. This document is intended to be an easy to use guide for future decision making,preservation planning, and actions taken by the Lincoln County Historic Properties Commission as it relates to the preservation efforts at Ramsour’s Mill Battleground. It is also intended to be a measuring gauge for preservation efforts
and their effectiveness over time.
