Things To Do

Because the Site is closed to the public pending restoration, there are no regularly scheduled activities.

You can visit the location and see the building façade, but there will be no interpretive activities or Park Ranger presence for the pubic.

Occasionally, there may be an event related to the Site, which will be added to the Schedule of Events as needed.
