Tenth annual ‘Night Walk Into the Past’ slated

The Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site, 7400 Grant Road, will present the 10th annual edition of its popular living history program “A Night Walk Into the Past,” nightly from Friday, Aug. 6, through Sunday, Aug. 8.

As visitors walk the grounds of the site, park rangers and volunteers will present costumed portrayals of individuals from the past. This year’s program focuses on Civil War figures, each providing his or her own unique perspective on the story of Ulysses and Julia Grant, according to a news release.

One lantern-lit performance will be offered each night. Attendees should arrive by 7 p.m. Although tickets for the program are free, space is limited and reservations are required; they may be made by calling the Visitor Center at (314) 842-3298 or by stopping by the park.

Walking shoes and insect repellent are recommended; lawn chairs are optional.

Grant’s Farm once again will provide free parking in the lot adjacent to the site.

The Night Walk is one of an ongoing series of special activities at this unit of the National Park Service, also known as White Haven. Visitors are encouraged to call for complete information about the site and its programs. The park is open for regular visitation from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
