Park News

OPEN FOR VISITORS: Until Veterans Day, both the Visitor’s Center and the Museum are open daily from 10 AM to 5 PM. Stop by to meet our interpretive guides and view artifacts from the Revolutionary War encampment!

NPS BATTLEFIELD INTERPRETATION GRANT: The park is involved in an exciting project with CRIS Radio that will culminate in an audio tour, available soon. Read more about the project here.

TWO GARDENS: The garden plots at the Museum are very much works in progress, but they are being regularly maintained once again! They have been cultivated to demonstrate two different types of 18th-century garden. One is a Paugussett-style “Three Sisters” garden; the other is representative of a typical colonist’s dooryard garden.
