Monetary donations to the park are also a meaningful way to show your support for Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site. Donations help the park maintain historic structures, support visitor services and public programs. You can make donations during your visit through the donation box located in the park visitor center. You can also send a check or money order made out to the National Park Service and sent to the park in care of the park Superintendent.
