Historic sites and numerous ruins representing early communities and homesteads, along with impact ranges, observation towers, and protective bunkers associated with JPG's military mission are some of the cultural resources preserved at JPG.
Throughout the Proving Ground, there is evidence of those who lived
and worked on this land. The Cantonment Area south of the firing
line has become a time capsule, comprising an unaltered portrait
of World War II-era military construction.
JPG is protected by Federal law, and the Army's Cultural Resources Management Plan (CRMP) provides a means for preserving historic properties that may contribute to our understanding of prehistory and history.
Under a Memorandum of Understanding between the Army, Air National Guard and the Indiana Air National Guard (INANG), the INANG is maintaining JPG's cultural resources including Old Timber Lodge, the Oakdale School, and four stone arch bridges.
