An Educational Center was part of the original vision for The Highground. The center would educate its visitors about the cost of war—the human cost. With the Park’s neighbors deciding to sell, The Highground needing to expand to accommodate more visitors and unexpected grants becoming available—The Learning Center became reality.

Today, The Learning Center encompasses a library filled with over 4,000 books covering military history. Its garage is a place for our volunteers to get their lunches during work weeks and the gallery, media room and meeting room holds many of the changing exhibits. Learning Center Coordinator, Julie Dallman is responsible for researching, evaluating and coordinating these exhibits; including setting them up and taking them down every 60-90 days. We are always looking for more displays, let us know if you have something or would like to see something in the Center for viewing.
