Facility:Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park
Description:Prairie Grove was the site of one of the largest Civil War Battles in Arkansas. The park includes a museum, gift shop, guided tours of the Morrow and Latta houses. This is more than just a military site. The park tries to convey what it was like for families during the battle and during the war. Walking the Battlefield Trail takes about an hour. This is a numbered trail and there is a pamphlet available in the Visitor's Center. For those into geocaching, there is a geocache tour of the park. A self guided driving tour of important civil war sites takes you in and out of the park. A free pamphlet is available at the Visitor's Center. A CD or cassette tape can be purchased for a nominal amount if a narrated guide to the driving tour is desired.

Homeschool groups are welcome. Homeschoolers get the group rate of $2.00 per person. A group tour includes a visit to the museum, a 14 minute educational video, a guided tour of the Morrow and Latta Houses. The entire program takes 1-1/2 hours. The picnic area and playground are available to groups before and after the tour.

This was an awesome field trip. The tour of the Latta and Morrow houses was fun. Then we had a chance to tour the grounds. The museum is interesting and the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. The pathway around the park is large enough for strollers or wheelchairs to go through easily. We stayed for lunch and had a picnic at the covered pavillion. Afterwards, some of us took the driving tour. The kids had a great time. If you go with a mixed age group and toddlers get restless you can always take them out to the playground while the older ones complete the tour. Highly recommend.
