Charles A. Lindbergh State Park
Record of Decision on Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW)
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), as the Responsible Governmental Unit for environmental review of the Tenant Farmer’s House Removal, Charles A. Lindbergh State Park, has issued the Record of Decision (ROD) document regarding the need for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the project.
The DNR has concluded that an EIS is not required because the project does not have the potential for significant environmental effects. The justification for this determination is contained in the ROD. The ROD also contains the DNR’s responses to all substantive written comments received on the EAW during the 30-day public review and comment period.
Issuing this ROD concludes the state environmental review process for this project according to the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board rules, Minnesota Rules, Part 4410.1000 to 4410.1700. This project can proceed to permitting and approvals.

The proposed project would demolish and remove the Tenant Farmer’s House at the Charles A. Lindbergh State Park in Little Falls in Morrison County, Minnesota. The structure is a safety hazard due to its state of disrepair and proximity to popular attractions and amenities in the State Park, and its condition detracts from the local scenery. The house was the home of the early-1900s tenant on the farm owned by Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh Sr., namesake of the park and father of the famous aviator. The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Charles A. Lindbergh State Park and Lindbergh House Historic District.
