Rangers Lead The Way

Camp Nelson National Monument is excited to share our new Ranger Ramble Series! The programs feature special events and presentation, including the 2nd Annual History at Sunset and history and nature programs that will highlight people, places, and events connected to one of America's newest National Park Service units.

Baseball in the Bluegrass

Have you ever experienced 19th Century Baseball? The NPS invites you to Civil War Era Baseball at Camp Nelson National Monument starting at 1:00 pm on Saturday, April 22, 2023!

The Bluegrass Barons take on the Georgetown Gentlemen on grounds adjacent to the park's visitor center and museum. The game features players in period uniforms and rules and regulations from 1869! Players will interact with visitors to explain the origins of baseball and all the similarities and differences between America's Pastime then and now!

The special event is free and open to the public!
