The Mission of Eastern National
Eastern National provides quality educational products and services to the visitors of America's national parks and other public trusts.
Eastern National is a three-sided, not-for-profit organization.
1. It is an educational institution that functions as a part of the interpretive, or educational arm of the National Park Service.
2. It is also a business that acquires or produces and sells cultural material to enhance the enjoyment of visitors to the national park system.
3. It is also a philanthropic organization that disperses net profit directly (and indirectly) to the National Park Service for a wide-range of diverse programs, such as educational programs; teacher's workshops; park newsletters, audio/video tours; visitor center films; special events; living history programs and more.
Did You Know?
Ulysses Grant narrowly missed Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Mr. and Mrs. Grant were invited to Ford Theater with President and Mrs. Lincoln. However, he and his wife decided to travel to New Jersey to visit their children instead. Had Grant attended, he may have been a target as well.
