Access to Moores Creek Bridge Closed for Trail Maintenance
Due to recent storms, the trail leading up to and beyond Moores Creek Bridge has been washed out due to flooding, making passage unsafe. Access to the bridge will be closed for the next couple of weeks. Please call the park for further updates.
What is the best way to teach history? By making it come to life. The staff at Moores Creek National Battlefield are entrusted with commemorating and preserving for education and military study, the sites and stories surrounding the Battle of Moores Creek Bridge, fought February 27, 1776. Through our education programs, we bring history to the students- they get to touch, see, smell, and feel history first-hand (sorry, no tasting demonstrations!). Sign up your class for our school program and make history come alive for your students. Programs include:
School programs last approximately 2 hours. We also have a great gift shop for those special momento's. To make things easier while planning, we also have a large picnic shelter that can easily accommodate 100 students and teachers.
If you are interested in reserving a school program for your class, grade, or home school group, please contact Matthew Woods, Chief of Interpretation, at 910-283-5591 ex.2222 or e-mail us. Please have a preferred date as well as a couple of alternate dates available so that we can get your group into the park to experience history.
