The Jackson Homestead and the Durant-Kenrick House are among 2,000 museums nationwide offering this program in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, and the Department of Defense. Any active duty service member, including members of the National Guard and Reserve, may participate. The program runs through Labor Day.
