Start your tour here!
The Guilford Courthouse National Military Park Battlefield Visitors Center is the first place you should begin your tour. Talk to a Park Ranger or a Volunteer and they will give you a map of the park. At this Visitors Center you will learn about the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution and the events that led to the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. Artifacts from this battle and the American Revolution illustrate the past in our museum exhibits.
The Battlefield Visitors Center is located at 2332 New Garden Road, Greensboro, NC 27410, use this address in your maps app. Do not drive through Forest Lawn Cemetery, this is a dead end!
Due to faulty directions in Google Maps, Apple Maps, and other platforms, please drive along US 220/Battleground Avenue and turn on New Garden Road heading East. You will see the large brown sign saying “Guilford Courthouse National Military Park” on the corner. Drive up New Garden past the historic buildings where you will see our sign, then take a right into the parking lot.

The Battlefield Visitor Center parking lot is a loop road with an entrance on the left hand side and exit on the right hand side. Two handicap parking spots are immediately located when you turn into the parking lot. Both spots have ramp access on the passenger side of the vehicle. The first row of car parking offers a paved path that visitors must step up onto from a curb, but there is a graded ramp entrance at the rear of the first handicap parking spot closest to the visitor center. Please note that the ramp has a narrow entrance and may be slightly difficult to use due to the slight elevation of the ramp’s edges. This ramp will connect to the paved path leading to the Visitor Center.
