Park Film

First State National Historical Park is pleased to share its orientation film. This film was completed at the beginning of 2022, and we are making sure visitors have access to it while its future home, the park’s Welcome Center in the Sheriff’s House, is undergoing a major preservation project.

The goal of this orientation film is to introduce the many nationally significant stories across the park’s six sites in a brief and digestible length film that engages the visitor’s curiosity and inspires an in-person visit to the First State NHP sites.
