The National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, Section 106, could be applied to the potential prison relocation site in Fairfield, next to Camp Floyd Military Cemetery.
Section 106 states, “adverse effect occurs when a project may directly or indirectly diminish the integrity of an historic property, by altering any of the characteristics that qualify the property for national register inclusion.”
Much has been ignored by the Prison Relocation Commission in relation to Fairfield’s Civil War history and historic encampment. The prison would adversely affect and substantially impact the important historic property.
