Planning Your Trip

  • Lock your vehicle when you leave it in the parking area.
  • Wear sturdy footwear that support your walk throughout the historic site.
  • Bring water as needed to help ward off heat exhaustion.
  • Keep in mind that snakes and insects like warm weather too.
  • Do not approach any wildlife (snakes, turtles, etc.) to "play" with that you may encounter during your visit to the site. Wildlife is unpredictable--they may attack without warning.
