Detour to Rosie The Riveter Memorial
The road connecting highway 580 to the Rosie the Riveter memorial is temporarily closed for construction of an underpass. In the meantime, refer to the "Directions" link under "Plan Your Visit" for detour information.
Allied victory during World War II was supported by the contributions and sacrifices of the men and women working on the American Home Front. Women, who worked in defense industries, became known as "Rosie the Riveters", named after a popular song written in 1942.
Although the name of the park starts with "Rosie the Riveter" we are committed to collecting a wide range of stories that relate to the American Home Front.
Your story and perspective of the World War II Home Front is unique and important. Please consider sharing your memories with us.
