Pipestone National Monument Honors Veterans with Fee Free Day
Pipestone, MN: To honor America's service men and women, all areas managed by the Department of the Interior, including Pipestone National Monument, are not charging entrance fees on Wednesday, November 11th, 2015. on Veterans Day. These hours will be in effect every day throughout the winter months. The Pipestone Indian Shrine Association, (gift shop) located in the Visitor Center will be open the same hours.
Visitors are advised to dress warmly to walk the Circle Trail, to view the pipestone quarries and to see the Winnewissa Falls. The fall and winter seasons offer many photographic opportunities of the prairie and wildlife. During this quiet time of the year, visiting the Monument and walking the Circle Trail can be particularly enjoyable and peaceful.
