In May of 1962, the Grand Gulf Military Monument Park was officially opened, dedicated to preserving the memory of both the town and the battle in which occurred there. Located eight miles northwest of Port Gibson, Mississippi off Highway 61, this 400 acre landmark is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and includes Fort Cobun and Fort Wade, the Grand Gulf Cemetery, a museum, picnic areas, hiking trails, an observation tower, and several restored buildings dating back to Grand Gulf's heyday.
The museum and grounds fee is only $3.00 for those that are under 60 years young, $2.00 for those that are over 60 years young, and $1.00 for students K-12th grade.
Grand Gulf Military Monument Park is located 10 miles from the Natchez Trace Parkway. Exit Natchez Trace Parkway onto Mississippi Highway 18 (milepost 41) and drive into Port Gibson. From the courthouse area in Port Gibson take Anthony Street out of town heading northwest. Anthony Street becomes Oil Mill Road. Oil Mill Road deadends into Grand Gulf Road. Turn left on Grand Gulf Road and follow the road to the park.
