NORFOLK, Va.   –  

The Secretary of the Navy has responded to the comments from the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP). The Navy agrees with ACHP on a number of comments and plans to provide the National Park Service with funds ($887,000) to support Ferry House preservation, and to install historical interpretive signs within the Ebey's Landing National Historic Reserve.

The Navy is committed to ensuring that it remains a good neighbor with the local communities surrounding our installations while at the same time meeting our urgent national defense priorities.
