Predicted Winter Storm Prompts Fort Donelson NB to Close for Visitor Safety

Due to inclement winter weather moving into the region, Fort Donelson National Battlefield will be closed Friday, December 6.

According to Brian McCutchen, Fort Donelson NB Superintendent, "With the predicted severity of a series of  ice storms, freezing rain, sleet, snow, and sub-freezing temperatures, and anticipated hazardous road conditions, we feel it best to be proactive and plan on closure of the national park unit for Friday, December 6. This undertaking is to minimize any undue risk to both visitors and staff. When conditions allow, we will reopen," McCutchen added.
