Women's Rights National Historic Park in Seneca Falls and Waterloo will be getting a new superintendent.
Tammy Duchesne was named superintendent of the park by National Park Service Northeast Regional Director Dennis Reidenbach. Duchesne will replace Tina Orcutt, who is leaving to become superintendent of Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Baltimore, Maryland and Hampton National Historic Site in Towson, Maryland.
Duchesne and Orcutt will begin their new posts in August.
Reidenbach, in a statement provided by the National Park Service, praised Orcutt for her time at the Women's Rights National Historic Park.
"Tina has done an outstanding job in her current position, including working on major preservation projects like the rehabilitation of the Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca Falls. Her strong background in cultural resources, interpretation and park management, makes her the ideal leader for the home of The Star-Spangled Banner, and to tell the stories of those who owned, and those who were enslaved at Hampton," Reidenbach said.
Duchesne will make the move from her job as management assistant to the Northeast Regional Director's office in Philadelphia to Seneca Falls, where she trained to become a park superintendent.
