Four accessible parking spaces are located near the entrance to the visitor center. The spaces have a 2.4% 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 that interprets the war and the lifestyle of that period through models and freestanding and hands-on exhibits. A theater offers easy access for watching a video on the battle.
A gravel parking area off of the city street allows entry onto the battlefield. Battlefield Trail contains slopes of less than 5%, but is made of crushed rock, which might make nonmotorized wheelchair use difficult.
The Anderson House
The pathway to the house is a combination of grass and rock-infilled monoslab and a hard-packed ground path. It is a little rough to traverse, with a maximum slope of 5%. This path winds to the front entrance, where railed steps lead to the front porch. The front door has a 4-inch-high threshold. A ramp leading onto the back porch of the house may be easier for some visitors to access the main floor. The back door has a 3-inch-high threshold, which visitors may need assistance with. Once inside, the main floor is accessible; however, continuing on to the second floor requires the use of a railed staircase.
