The Alan Bible Visitor Center, built in 1966 has been brought into the 21st century while preserving its historic elements. Improvements include bringing its many systems up to code, improving accessibility throughout the building and making it more climate friendly by conserving and producing energy.
Our Visitor Center volunteers can answer all your park questions and they have a wealth of knowledge about the park, it's history, and things to do.
