Plan Your Visit

The National Park Service has a temporary Visitor Center in the Nicodemus Township Hall located south of the Roadside Park off Highway 24. The Visitor Center has exhibits, an audio-visual program, and a bookstore. Also, don't forget to stamp your Passport while you're there! The temporary Visitor Center is the only one of the five historic buildings fully accessible to the public, but the foyer of the AME Church has been opened to allow visitors to view the interior. If you would like to explore the town on foot, a walking tour brochure is available at the Visitor Center.
