Purchase items in the park's store and a percentage of the profits go to support visitor and interpretive programming. The store represents the many General Stores that once dotted the landscape that later became the park. Some of those stores, for example, the store on the Taylor Farm, supplied more than food and housewares to area residents. They were a local gathering place for news and gossip. Folks would gather at the store to read letters or to hear the local newspaper read aloud.
Eastern National is one of Prince William Forest Park's cooperating associations.
In 2009, Eastern National helped publish the park's first-ever book - Prince William Forest Park: Experience a Place Where History and Nature Unite. This book is 48-page, full-color overview of the inexpensive family fun, fascinating history, and natural beauty that is the park.
