Salazar to Dedicate New High-Tech Visitor Center at Boston’s Historic Faneuil Hall
Contact: Adam Fetcher (202) 208-6416
Boston National Historical Park already attracts more than 3 million visitors a year and supports more than 1,200 jobs in the local community. The new visitor center is expected to help increase visitor numbers and improve visitors’ experiences.
The new enhanced facility - a collaboration between the city of Boston and the National Park Service - includes interactive exhibits, an audio visual orientation program, handicapped-accessible public restrooms, and a bookstore. The space is comprised of 7,400 square feet for visitor services and community meeting space.
Later on Friday, Salazar will join U.S. Representative Niki Tsongas for a tour of the Lowell National Historical Park where he will see first-hand how the Park has helped spur economic revitalization throughout the city of Lowell.
