As announced by the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site, the Sandburg Home roof replacement project will begin on March 23, 2020. Due to the project the area surrounding the home will be closed to the public and visitors are advised to pay attention to signs and barriers.
The Barn and Home areas remain closed as the park follows guidance from the CDC and recommendations from state and local public health, in consultation with Public Health Service officers. The closures include suspending Home tours, access to the goats and farm animals, and all programs. The shuttles will not be running. Restrooms, trails, and grounds (except for the barn) are open.
