National Park Service
The George Rogers Clark National Historical Park bookstore and gift shop is located in the park visitor center located at 401 S. 2nd St. The shop is operated by our cooperating association, Eastern National, which contributes a portion of its sales back into the park for visitor-related projects. By purchasing items in our bookstore, you are helping to support the park! At George Rogers Clark, visitors can purchase books, souvenirs, and educational items to enhance their visit to the George Rogers Clark site, learn about early American history such as the Revolutionary War in the West, the Northwest Territory, the War of 1812, and increase their knowledge of the National Park Service.
