The Friends of Odell House Rochambeau Headquarters (OHRH), a 501c3 non-profit, is seeking proposals from individuals or teams to develop a Cultural Landscape Report (CLR) for the property which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The project must be led by a licensed landscape architect with proven experience in the planning and design of cultural landscapes. The CLR must follow the guideline of “The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties with Guidelines for Treatment of Cultural Landscapes” (1996, https://irma.nps.gov/DataStore/DownloadFile/514832). The RFP award is subject to approval by the Board of Directors of OHRH and the Town of Greenburgh, NY which owns the property. OHRH reserves the right to reject any and all bids

SIGNIFICANCE OF PROJECT SITE

The property is an important site on the Washington Rochambeau Revolutionary Route, a National Park Service trail, which begins in Newport RI and ends in Yorktown, VA. This trail traces the route the French forces led by General Rochambeau, followed in 1781 to join with the Continental forces commanded by George Washington. They combined their forces in Greenburgh NY beginning on July 6, 1781. The French and American armies remained jointly encamped around OHRH until August 18, 1781 when they made the momentous decision to march to VA and confront British General Cornwallis. General Rochambeau lived in OHRH for the six weeks of the encampment. Other than Newport, this is the longest he stayed in any dwelling in America.
