History at Sunset

Many History at Sunset programs explore sites "off the beaten path." Others tell new stories at familiar locations.

History at Sunset is an annual program held by the park during the summer season. Every Friday evening at 7 p.m., park historians will lead a tour or special program in the park or the surrounding area. These tours focus on areas rarely visited or stories rarely told.

The programs will begin at 7 p.m. and will run approximately 90 minutes. Be prepared for some walking, and please bring a flashlight. Check back for the Summer 2018 schedule.
