Our special hours for Memorial Day are 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, Eastern, for both the Cafe and Visitor Center. Come enjoy a lovely hike, tasty meal or tour our historic site this Memorial Day in Rugby.

Ranger Natasha Hamby Klug will lead a hike at 9:30/8:30 Central to the historic Gentlemen’s Swimming Hole on the Clear Fork River within the park. Just meet her at the trailhead opposite Rugby’s Laurel Dale Cemetery. The National Park Service ranger station is open 9-5 Eastern for Memorial Day.

Thanks for visiting us!

This wonderful card from Vintage Holiday Crafts has the caption: “A Grateful Land Remembers All Her Promises Today”-what a great sentiment for all the men and women who protect our freedom both here at home and in many distant lands. We appreciate and honor our troops, and on this special day especially all those who fell for our freedom.
