In 1977, the intention of the original fellows for the minor children of takers was interpreted more widely at the national political level in order to allow the continued occupation of minor children living at the time of the signing of the initial leisure contracts. In some cases, living children were included in life contracts, but in others they were not. Instead of amending leases to include children who had left the original agreements, additional occupancy should be provided with special use authorizations. The NPS is committed to this policy, which is documented in the pursuit of special use authorizations for these descendants. A fee of $25 per year is charged for processing authorizations. There are a total of 6 sites occupied under these special 1977 use authorizations and 1 under an initial lease. More than 70 years have passed since most of the original leases were signed. It is important to note that the Isle Royale Commission used life rental as an instrument to obtain the title of a low-cost or no cost to the government, whereas a sale in good standing would generally have a higher cost to the taxpayer. When a life contract was requested, the number of people entering the rental agreement was included in the conditions of the subdivision with their age. In any event, the leases were limited to two generations related to the original title, which involved living sons and daughters. Sometimes there were no descendants, such leases that only concern landowners, that is, a generation.
In some cases, short-term life contracts were awarded, resulting in three or five years of employment. Separately, there are a few examples where outside families known to the National Park Movement, as well as the life-rental option, and who considered it desirable to own property in a national park, have taken steps to obtain cabins and real estate from existing owners to adequate ownership before being sold to the government itself. Immediately after the purchase, the family then donated the property or sold it to the Commission at a lower price in exchange for a lifetime lease. In most cases, cabins and structures related to previous and existing life contracts are present in the landscape of the Royal Island, whose existence is now linked to the continuation of exploitation. America`s founding fathers had something to do with it. In 1783, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams signed the Treaty of Paris, an agreement that ended the war of independence and established the country`s borders. After 1931, which allowed the law, the federal government began to acquire land and private real estate on Royal Island. E.G. Willemin, a federal agent with extensive experience in organizing land transfers to other eastern national parks, was introduced in June 1935 by Albert Stoll members of the Isle Royale National Park Commission. Until 1935, much of the island was purchased by larger landowners who left small groups of individual properties for purchase or donation. Summer cottage owners have been offered life rental contracts for a reduced sale price. As part of the agreement, maintenance and maintenance would be provided by the families.
In many ways, the presence of the remaining summer camps and cottages on the Royal Island can now be tolerated for the mandate of life. The Cultural Resources Management Plan is responsible for the management, conservation, public use and interpretation of cultural resources within the park. In order to preserve historic structures and sites during planning efforts and to maintain options during the plan, the park has entered into one-year VIP agreements on historic refuge sites within potential wilderness facilities.
