Wilson's Creek National Battlefield

The Hulston Library, at Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield, will be closed from September 15, 2019 until the summer of 2020. “We thank our visitors and library patrons for their patience during this necessary closure, which will allow our visitor center, museum exhibits, and artifact storage facility meet standards and protect the artifacts for years to come,” says Superintendent Hillmer.

Wilson's Creek National Battlefield, one of six national parks in the state of Missouri, is a perfect stop for an entertaining and educational experience.

Fought on August 10, 1861, the Battle of Wilson's Creek was a pivotal battle in Missouri and the second major battle of the Civil War. When the smoke cleared, more than 2,500 Union and Confederate soldiers were killed, wounded or missing in five hours of intense fighting. The visitor center features a new 27-minute film, a museum and changing exhibits. A five-mile self-guided tour road allows visitors to explore the battlefield at their own pace. Walking trails lead to various battle sites, including Bloody Hill, the Historic John Ray House, and the Edwards Cabin.
