Nicodemus reopens historic site


NICODEMUS -- Nicodemus National Historic Site reopens to visitors Friday.

Visitors can access public areas and roads immediately while facilities and other public services are brought back online. Nicodemus National Historic Site had been closed since Oct. 1 due to the federal government shutdown.

"We are excited happy to be back at work and welcome visitors to Nicodemus National Historic Site," said Superintendent Angela Wetz. "Autumn is a particularly special season to enjoy all that Nicodemus has to offer."

The visitor center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. excluding federal holidays and will continue to offer the park film, tours and interpretive programs.
