The site host totally engages the visitors. He is a retired science teacher who has a real knack for making the history interesting. I have taken others with me the last few years and learn new things every time. A hidden gem.

I don't know off hand, but because it is part of the National Parks, hours should be online. One more thing, several pay and no pay National Parks options, so if you have the National Parks pass it will save you money.
