Federal government shutdown impacts Sitka National Historical Park

With the federal government shutdown starting late Friday night (Jan. 19) in Alaska, there will be some changes at Sitka National Historical Park until the government reopens, whenever that happens.

For now, the trails remain open. But the visitor’s center, public bathrooms, trash collection and other amenities are all closed (and this includes at the Russian Bishop’s House). There will be a law enforcement officer patrolling the trails and making sure there is no vandalism to the property, and a maintenance person will be on call to prevent damage to the climate-controlled historic exhibits. More federal shutdown info is available from the park’s website.
