Abstract
The St. Elizabeths West Campus cemetery is an exceptionally historic resource for the District of Columbia, and especially for the hospital grounds. In fact, the cemetery is a portion of the grounds listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Over the years the West Campus cemetery has failed to receive the care and attention that it both deserves and requires. As a result of these years of deferred maintenance, a number of issues - many of them critical and costly - require the immediate attention of the GSA. This report evaluates these needs.
