[DNR] George Rogers Clark Home Site opening for 2014
Start Date: 5/2/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/2/2014
Entry Description
The log cabins at the George Rogers Clark Home Site in Clarksville will be open to visitors beginning May 24.

Hours of operation will be Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cabin may be open other times also. Check the Falls of the Ohio State Park website and Facebook page for up-to-date information.

The George Rogers Clark Home Site, 1102 W. Harrison Ave., overlooks the Falls of the Ohio and is part of the Falls of the Ohio State Park. Admission is free.

The early 19th century log cabin, similar to what Clark may have lived in between 1803 and 1809, was reassembled on site in 2001. The cabin is furnished with pieces representing the time period.

The McGee cabin, which was dedicated last fall, interprets the story of Clark’s African-American indentured servants.

An interpreter will be onsite when the cabins are open to share the history of Clark, the McGees and the site’s connection to the Lewis and Clark expedition.

For more information, and to make group reservations, call (812) 280-9970.

The site will close for the winter on Nov. 2.

Falls of the Ohio State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2984.htm) is at 201 W. Riverside Dr. Clarksville, 47129.
