Passport to Your National Parks®

The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership is thrilled to announce the inclusion of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area in the National Park Service’s passport program, administered by Eastern National, who also provides the passport books.

Since its inception in 1986, the Passport To Your National Parks® program has introduced millions of visitors to the National Park System and continues to promote visitation, education, and appreciation of America’s national treasures. This is one of the most popular ways to preserve memories of visits to America’s national parks. Visitors can get their complimentary Passport cancellations at each site they visit. The rubber- stamp ink markings record the name of the location and date of the visit. 

Of course, the Passport To Your National Parks® program is already in existence at the 13 national parks located within the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area--- parks such as Antietam National Battlefield, Appalachian National Scenic Trail, Appomattox Court House National Historic Park, Catoctin Mountain Park, Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historic Park, Eisenhower National Historic Site, Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park, Gettysburg National Military Park, Harpers Ferry National Historic Park, Manassas National Battlefield, Monocacy National Battlefield, Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, and Shenandoah National Park.

Perhaps most exciting is that we are including not only our national parks, but key historic sites and visitor centers within the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area: 

Pennsylvania

Maryland

West Virginia

Virginia

Visitor Centers/ CVBs

All of these locations will be included on a new map/brochure of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area, which will include a panel on which to collect cancellation stamps.
