from U.S. National Park Service
Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site and National Parks across the country will offer fee free days to all visitors during Veteran’s Day Weekend, Saturday, November 10, through Monday, November 12. “National parks preserve places that commemorate our country’s collective heritage-our ideals, our majestic lands, our sacred sites, our patriotic icons-which our military has defended through the years,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “We are grateful for the service and sacrifice of military members, past and present, and honored to tell their story at many of our national parks.”
Carl Sandburg Home NHS will waive the tour fee of the Sandburg Home. There is never a fee to visit the grounds, trails or farm. Active duty personnel are also encouraged to pick up the new America the Beautiful Military Pass for use throughout the year at any national park, wildlife refuge or other federal site that charges an entrance fee. Military members must show a current, valid military identification card to obtain their pass. Dependents of active duty personnel are also eligible for this pass.
Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site is located three miles south of Hendersonville off U.S. 225 on Little River Road. The park is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., daily, except Christmas Day.
