The National Park Service announced Monday that Tammy Duchesne will be the new superintendent of Puuhonua O Honaunau and Kaloko-Honokohau National Historic Parks in Hawaii.
She is currently the superintendent of Women’s Rights National Historic Park in Seneca Falls, New York.
Duchesne also was a curator and chief of cultural resources for the War in the Pacific National Historical Park on Guam and the American Memorial Park on Saipan for more than six years during her time with the National Park Service. She helped open the American Memorial Park Visitor Center.
Duchesne's replacement will become the 7th park superintendent in Seneca Falls since the Women's Rights National Historical Park was established in 1980.
The first superintendent was Judy Hart followed by Linda Canzanelli, Joanne Hanley, Josie Fernandez, Tina Orcutt, and Tammy Duchesne.
Women's Rights National Historical Park was established in 1980, and covers a total of 6.83 acres (27,600 m²) of land in Seneca Falls and nearby Waterloo, New York, USA.
The park consists of four major historical properties including the Wesleyan Chapel, the site of the first Women's Rights Convention. The Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, and the homes of other early women's rights activists (the M'Clintock House and the Richard Hunt House) are also on display. The park includes a visitor center on Fall Street in Seneca Falls.
