Big Hole National Battlefield is a unique unit in the National Park Service. This park is one of 38 sites that is part of Nez Perce National Historical Park. Unlike other sites that have a contiguous block of land, Nez Perce National Historical Park stretches across Oregon, Idaho, Washington, and Montana. Of the park's 38 sites, the National Park Service owns nine and each one offers its own set of challenges and opportunities.
