National Park Service Partner
Partnerships at Gettysburg National Military Park
At Gettysburg, National Park Service partnerships have played an important role in the preservation of this historic site. The partnership at Gettysburg between the National Park Service and the Gettysburg Foundation has been described as a model for the National Park Service system.
The Gettysburg Foundation’s broad preservation mission in partnership with the National Park Service includes work in land preservation, battlefield rehabilitation to enhance interpretation of the story of the Battle of Gettysburg, monument and cannon preservation, artifact preservation and education. The Gettysburg Foundation’s Friends of Gettysburg is made up of thousands of members from all over the country and abroad who are committed to preserving Gettysburg for future generations.
The Gettysburg Foundation operates the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center on behalf of and in partnership with the National Park Service. The Foundation raised the funds for and built the Museum and Visitor Center, which opened to the public in 2008.
