Gettysburg National Military Park will remain open to the public despite the lapse of appropriations and the subsequent shutdown of the federal government, according a news release.

This will include park roads, memorials and trails at the military park, however, emergency and rescue services will be limited. The film, cyclorama painting and museum exhibits at the park and visitor center will remain open, and licensed battlefield guides will be available to give tours.

However, there will be no National Park Service-provided visitor services, including public information, trash collection, facilities and road maintenance, including snow plowing.

All park programs have been canceled. In addition, all social media and websites related to the park will not be monitored or updated. The Soldiers’ National Cemetery, including the annex, will be closed, as well the David Wills House and the Eisenhower National Historic Site.
