The National Park Service announced that the Little Bighorn Battlefield archives and collections will be temporarily relocated to a storage facility in Arizona. The move is to to protect and preserve the historic objects and records while the NPS works to establish a more secure and permanent repository at the battlefield.
The collection, which includes more than 123,000 historical archive items and nearly 26,000 historic objects and specimens, will go to the NPS’s Western Archaeological and Conservation Center (WACC), a premier preservation and storage facility. The temporary relocation will not include museum items and photographs already on display in the monument visitor center, where they will remain on exhibit. Read more.
