Four handicap parking spaces are located near the entrance to the visitor center. The spaces have a 2.4 percent slope. The doors of the building are power-assisted and lead to a spacious interior. Accessible restrooms and a water fountain are provided for your comfort. The center houses an excellent museum interpreting the war and the lifestyle of that period including models, freestanding and hands-on exhibits. A theater offers easy access for watching a video on the battle.

Battlefield Trail

The pathway to the house is grass in-filled monoslab and is a little rough to traverse. The rest of the tour is over natural grass turf of varying slopes. A gravel parking area off of the city street allows easier entry onto the battlefield. The trail contains slopes of less than 5 percent. The tour area is mostly sunny.

The Anderson House

The pathway to the house, which is grass in-filled monoslab, is a little rough to traverse and has a maximum slope of 5 percent. It winds to the front entrance where railed steps lead to the porch. The front door has a four-inch high threshold. A ramp at the back porch may be easier for some visitors to access the main floor. Assistance may be needed at the four-inch high threshold.

Once inside, the main floor is accessible. The stairs are railed to the second floor where the tour continues of the bedrooms. For those unable to access stairs, flipbooks are available.
