Hopewell Discovery Day 2013 - Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Due to the federal government shutdown, the 2013 Hopewell Discovery Day was cancelled.  The scheduled date of October the 12th was during the shutdown period and unfortunately forced the park to cancel this year's event.  Planning is taking place for the 2014 Discovery Day.  We hope to see you there for next year's event.  Thank you for your unconditional support of YOUR National Park!
