George Rogers Clark National Historical Park
A 30-minute movie on Clark's western campaign is offered every 1/2 hour. This film, Long Knives, is a great way to learn about Clark's exploits in the Illinois Country and is a good way to begin a visit. A six-minute audio program is provided in the Clark Memorial. This program will guide you through the seven murals and the story they represent. The visitor center offers brochures, maps, handouts, and other information about the history, the people, and other sites.
Exhibits within the building explore Fort Sackville, the various cultures involved in the Clark story, and other facets of the conquest of the Northwest Territory. Costumed living history programs are randomly offered. These programs frequently are available for groups. The park also provides opportunities for family and recreational time. A picnic area is located near the visitor center parking area. Sidewalks are strategically located throughout the park leading to a variety of monuments and statues offering a unique area in which to stroll and to explore.
