Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site will be opening a new Visitor and Education Center in Eads Tuesday, November 10. The Visitor and Education Center is in addition to the visitor contact station at the site, which is located near Chivington, and will provide an opportunity for people to learn more about the Cheyenne and Arapaho people who were at Sand Creek November 29, 1864. It will also be an opportunity to get more information about the site and see the bookstore operated by Western National Park Association.
The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers, and partners at Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site is our number one priority.
