DescriptionNational Capital Parks - Central (NACC) was established in 1965 to administer the National Park Service units in the memorial core of our nation's capital. Today, NACC preserves and interprets more than a dozen NPS areas including the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, Ford's Theatre National Historic Site and the House Where Lincoln Died (Petersen House), Pennsylvania Avenue National Historical Park, and the Old Post Office Tower and the newest addition of the World War II National Memorial.

These areas, along with hundreds of smaller parks, serve as settings for government buildings and the museums of the Smithsonian Institution. Each year NACC issues permits for thousands of special events and First Amendment activities on The National Mall, and hosts more than 10 million visitors who journey to Washington D.C. to find inspiration among the principle symbols of America's heritage.
