Not of National Significance

The latest issue of California History magazine from the California Historical Society contains a heartbreaking article, "Not of National Significance: Failed National Park Proposals in California" by Lary M. Dilsaver, professor of Historical Geography at the University of South Alabama. The article discusses many natural maritime resources, such as Point Conception, as well as cultural maritime resources including the Angel Island Immigration Station and the USS Potomac.

Why read the article? Because many of the proposals are still active.
