Guilford Courthouse, 1887 - 2012

This tour maps the evolving commemorative landscape of Guilford Courthouse National Military Park. We can watch as the Guilford Battle Ground Company's founders filled the landscape with monuments and recreation facilities. The development of a central avenue of monuments is clearly visible before the National Park Service substantially redesigned the park after assuming responsibility for the historic site during the 1930s.
