Cultural Resources Branch
Preserving the Past while Training for
Fort Hood DPW-Cultural Resources
(FHCRM) is responsible for ensuring Fort Hood’s compliance with
Federal Regulations governing cultural/archaeological
properties. Our Integrated Cultural Resources Management Plan
(ICRMP) provides management information to efficiently and
effectively balance cultural resource stewardship
responsibilities and mission requirements on Fort Hood.
Fort Hood successfully implemented the Historic
Properties Component which addresses compliance with Section 106
of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended,
through implementation of the Army Alternate Procedures.

Military and civilian Fort Hood community. These are listed below and can be accessed

in building 1938 on Rod & Gun Loop. We are next door to the
