USAHEC Resumes Weekend Hours April 3, 2010


Beginning April 3, 2010, the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center will resume weekend hours of operation. Ridgway Hall will be open to the public from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturdays, and 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm Sundays. Weekend hours will continue through October 31, 2010.  Ridgway Hall will be open for exhibit viewing and research, but all research pulls must be arranged during the week, as no research materials will be pulled on the weekends.
The USAHEC is currently featuring an exhibit on the history of Carlisle Barracks entitled, “Carlisle Barracks: Then and Now,” which will run through December of 2012. On April 23, 2010, the USAHEC will open its newest exhibit, “America’s Last Five Star General,” which examines the life and legacy of the Soldier’s Soldier, General Omar N. Bradley. This exhibit is scheduled to run through April of 2012.
Now that the snow has melted, the Army Heritage Trail is once again bustling with walkers, bike riders and military history buffs. The trail is open dawn to dusk daily.
