On August 25, 2007 Washita Battlefield National Historic Site staff opened the doors to the new visitor center to the public. Currently our new headquarters feature exhibits depicting the clash of cultures that laid the foundation for the attack along the Washita River. The new visitor center also hosts a Western National Parks Association bookstore, and the park's 27-minute film,
Destiny at Dawn.
