Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site, Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site and Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail Re-Opens to Visitors

Tuskegee, AL – Tuskegee Institute NHS, Tuskegee Airmen NHS and Selma to Montgomery NHT re-opens to visitors today. Visitors can access public areas and roads immediately while facilities and other public services are brought back online. Tuskegee Institute NHS, Tuskegee Airmen NHS and Selma to Montgomery NHT have been closed since October 1 due to the lapse in Congressional appropriations.

"We are grateful to be back at work to provide services to our visitors and partners", said Superintendent Sandra L. Taylor. "The employees are ready to perform the work they love and educate the public about the great American stories that make this country great. I invite everyone to come and see our Sites; its’ good reinforcement for the rich heritage we share."

Tuskegee Institute NHS, Tuskegee Airmen NHS and Selma to Montgomery NHT hosted 95 visitors on average each day in October 2012. Visitors spend about $2,110,000 a year in the surrounding communities. We are a proud member of this community. Check our websites for upcoming fall interpretative programs, www.nps.gov/tuin www.nps.gov/tuai www.nps.gov/semo.
