National Park Service

Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park Superintendent Kevin D. Brandt is the recipient of the national 2010 Appleman-Judd-Lewis Award for Excellence in Cultural Resource Stewardship.

The award recognizes Brandt's contributions to excellence in cultural resource stewardship, and especially his role in conceiving, developing and nurturing the C&O Canal Quarters program.

Canal Quarters is a new program that allows visitors to stay overnight in a period-furnished lock house while having an immersive interpretive experience on the C&O Canal. The program capitalizes on the proximity of the lock houses to the 184.5 mile-long towpath and provides a new interpretive opportunity for the park's 4.1 million visitors. C&O Canal Quarters is the result of a partnership between the C&O Canal Trust and C&O Canal National Historical Park, and exemplifies creative and adaptive reuse of historic buildings in a national park.

The award was presented to Brandt by National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis at an Aug. 16 ceremony in Washington, D.C.

The Appleman-Judd-Lewis Award for Excellence in Cultural Resource Stewardship is an annual recognition for outstanding contributions to cultural-resource stewardship by a National Park Service employee. The award was created to recognize expertise and foster creativity in cultural-resource stewardship practices and projects, particularly those that might serve as examples or models for programs throughout the National Park Service.
