100 Years: Let's celebrate!

The National Park Service turns 100 on August 25, 2016,from August 25 through August 28, and we're inviting visitors of all ages to join in the celebration with special events across the country, and free admission to all 412 national parks from August 25 through August 28. That includes Saint-Gaudens National Historic site, New Hampshire's only national park right here in Cornish!

Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, a National Park for the Arts, features the sculpture of Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Enjoy the beautiful grounds and artwork, attend a Sunday concert, or plan to take a sculpture class taught by our Sculptor in Residence. The free concert on the 28th, the centennial weekend, features a brass band, Brass Connection. Blue Skies, Broadway and Beyond, from 2:00 –4:00 p.m. in the Little Studio.

The Park Service invite you to find your park and discover the national parks and programs in your own backyard!
