Twenty-five candidates will become new citizens during a ceremony at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site on Monday, September 18 at 10:00 a.m. This is an annual tradition for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service North Carolina Office to host a naturalization ceremony at Carl Sandburg Home NHS. The ceremony will take place at the park’s amphitheater. The public is invited and welcome to observe this moving experience.  As the event takes place outdoors, please dress comfortably for the weather.

“This year new Americans will celebrate the fulfillment of their dreams of citizenship at some of our nation’s most historic sites,” USCIS Director León Rodríguez said. “At USCIS, we believe that being an American means understanding and honoring our history and the places the National Park Service is charged to protect.  We look forward to continuing to welcome new U.S. citizens and protecting ‘America's Best Idea’ for the future.”

Hosting naturalization ceremonies in national parks helps introduce new citizens to some of the nation’s most significant natural resources and cultural heritage sites. These historic and picturesque sites provide an ideal backdrop for citizenship ceremonies, where new citizens can learn about and reflect on American identity and the responsibilities of citizenship.
