#smallparksaturday: The dining room at @maggiewalkernps, located at 110½ E. Leigh Street on "Quality Row" in the Jackson Ward neighborhood of Richmond, #Virginia. The site was designated a @nationalhistoriclandmarknps in 1975. The National Historic Site was established in 1978 to tell the story of the life and work of Maggie L. Walker (1864-1934), a pioneering African American businesswoman, civil rights activist, philanthropist, and the first African American woman to serve as president of a bank in the United States. The home was built in 1883 by George W. Boyd, father of physician, Sarah Garland Boyd Jones. After Walker's death in 1934, her family remained in the home until it was transferred to the @nationalparkservice, along with its original furnishings. #va #vahistory #SpreadTheHistory #nps #nps101 #goparks #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #goparks #americanhistory #nationalparkgeek #travelblog #travelblogger #explore #blog #blogger #exploreva #architecture #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #maggiewalker #maggiewalkernhs #nationalhistoricsite #interiorthursdays #qualityrow #richmond #richmondva

The remains of the barracks at Frederica National Monument on St. Simons Island in #Georgia. Three years after founding Georgia in 1733, Gen. James Edward Oglethorpe established Fort Frederica to defend the colony against Spanish attack from Florida. In the 1742 battles of Bloody Marsh and Gully Hole Creek, forces under #Oglethorpe successfully repulsed Spanish attempts to invade St. Simons Island. At that time, about 200 British soldiers were stationed at Frederica. The barracks also served as a military hospital and as quarters for Spanish prisoners-of-war. By 1743, nearly 1,000 people lived at Frederica. The area with the fort's walls was a bustling community which included a tavern, butcher shop, candle maker, carpenter, and doctor, among many other trades. The fort remained active until a peace treaty between Great Britain and Spain was signed in 1748. Many residents continued living in the community until 1758, when a large fire destroyed the town. #Frederica was then abandoned and forgotten by time. In 1945, Fort Frederica National Monument was established. Since then, archaeological investigations have uncovered artifacts and foundations under the soil that have helped historians rediscover the stories behind the site. thehistorygirlnj #ga #gahistory #SpreadTheHistory #nps #nps101 #goparks #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #goparks #americanhistory #nationalparkgeek #travelblog #travelblogger #explore #blog #blogger #exploregeorgia #architecture #archi_ologie #fortfrederica #stsimonsisland #smallparksaturday #nationalmonument #monumentsforall #archaeology #fort

@fortpulaskinps on Cockspur Island, near Savannah, #Georgia. This fort was built by the United States between 1829 and 1847 at a cost of almost $1,000,000. The fort's walls average between five and eleven feet thick of solid brick; around 25,000,000 bricks were used. Most of the bricks were made locally in Savannah but other bricks were shipped from Maryland and Virginia. The only battle at Fort Pulaski occurred on April 10 and 11, 1862 between Union forces on Tybee Island and Confederate troops inside the fort. During the battle, the fort fell after Union bombardment opened wide gaps in the walls and heavily damaged other sections the outer walls. Union troops occupied Fort Pulaski from April, 1862 until the end of the Civil War. After 1862, the fort was used as a military and political prison. On October 15, 1924 the War Department declared Fort Pulaski a National Monument through a presidential proclamation from Calvin Coolidge. The monument was transferred from the War Department to the @nationalparkservice on August 10, 1933. At that time repairs on the abandoned and dilapidated started, when members of the Civilian Conservation Corps arrived. The fort was listed on the @nationalregisternps on October 15, 1966. #ga #gahistory #SpreadTheHistory #nps #nps101 #goparks #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #goparks #americanhistory #nationalparkgeek #travelblog #travelblogger #explore #blog #blogger #exploregeorgia #architecture #archi_ologie #fortpulaski #savannah #savannahga #smallparksaturday #civilwar #confederate #union #nationalmonument #monumentsforall

Today in #history: #OTD, April 1, 1942, the first #Japanese arrived at #Manzanar War Relocation Center in California after being forced from their homes under Executive Order 9066. The residential area at the Manzanar War Relocation Center was about one square mile, held a population of 10,000, and consisted of 36 blocks of hastily constructed, 20 foot by 100 foot tarpaper barracks. Each block also had a communal mess hall, a laundry room, latrines, a recreation hall, and an ironing room. In addition to the residential blocks, Manzanar had 34 additional blocks for staff housing, camp administration offices, two warehouses, a garage, a camp hospital, and a firehouse. The camp also had school facilities, a high school auditorium, chicken and hog farms, churches, a cemetery, a post office, a cooperative store, other shops, and a camp newspaper. The camp was surrounded by eight watchtowers manned by armed Military Police, and it was enclosed with a barbed wire fence. In an effort to make the desert landscape feel more welcoming, the incarcerees built gardens and water features, which are still present in various states of restoration today. After the site closed in 1945, the buildings were either moved, sold for scrap, or demolished. Replicas of two barracks, a mess hall, and a women's latrine have been built at the site on their original foundations. An informative museum is located in the original auditorium building and the cemetery at the rear of the property help put the site into context. Today the site is preserved and interpreted as part of the @nationalparkdervice as @manzanarnps. #ca #cahistory #nationalpark #nps #nps101 #FindYourPark #goparks #ushistory #americanhistory #nationalparkgeek #travelblog #travelblogger #explore #blog #blogger #manzanar #nationalhistoricsite #wwii #worldwarii #sierranevada #nrhp #nationalparkservice #archi_ologie #architecture #optoutside #smallparksaturday

Straddling NJ and PA you can explore the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area this #smallparksaturday Go Hike a trail. ••••• Thanks to Cassie @c.k.anderson for highlighting this great East coast Park. ——— If you’re like me and you follow lots of hiking/nature Instagram accounts you’re probably seeing a lot of really beautiful California, Utah, Colorado and Arizona parks with an occasional Great Smoky Mountains or Acadia thrown in there. I rarely see northeast parks represented (maybe I’m not following the right accounts). I’m here to represent the northeast with my modest hike today along part of the AT in Pennsylvania. This may not be as grand as Zion or as awe inspiring as Yosemite but you take what you can get!

March 31st marks the day Cesar Chavez was born in 1927. From the Presidential Medal of Freedom to peaceful & powerful activism Mr. Chavez made an everlasting mark on the United States. The 116 acre historic landmark served as his base of operations and home since 1972. Becoming a National Monument in 2012, President Obama established this site as a way for a culture to honor a leader, and a Nation to honor a pioneer! #cesarchavez #findyourpark #smallparksaturday #nationalmonument #outdoors #optoutside #outdoorsawaits

The Timucuans called this part of Florida home and helped French settlers adapt to the area by sharing food and even helping to build the fort.

Charles Pinckney was one busy guy! Katie is learning about his family background at this display. Charles followed in his father’s political footsteps and eventually held roles in local, state, national, and international governments/politics. #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #charlespinckneynationalhistoricsite #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #goparks #smallparksaturday #nationalparkgeek #juniorranger

Big open spaces and adventures are found at Mojave National Preserve. #smallparksaturday ••••• Thank you Laura @lauraashburnphotography for the great adventure. ------- When thinking of the desert some people probably think hot and dry. This past week has been anything but. This spot in the Mojave National Preserve was the first major highlight I paused at on my trip. The winds were so strong I could barely steady my tripod. I had about 3 layers on as I ran all over the place trying to find different compositions. In the early morning hours at the Grand Canyon it was a low of about 5 degrees complete with snow and ice. Every other morning location involved a temperature somewhere in the teens and several places I had to be careful that I didn’t slip and fall on ice. The desert has always been a favorite environment of mine, even during the meteorological highs and lows. There are so many beautiful details and colors to see when you keep an eye out. Every road trip I take through the Southwest makes me appreciate the unique desert beauty even more. ------- #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #mojavenationalpreserve #Mojave #wnpa1938
