Steamtown National Historic Site Still Closed

SCRANTON, Pa. -- The government may be back open, but a historic landmark in Scranton remains closed.

Anyone who tried visiting the Steamtown National Historic Site on Saturday found signs saying it remains shut down.

Its website says some parks affected by the shutdown may take longer to reopen than others.

Steamtown has been closed since the government shutdown began on December 22.

The Department of the Interior, which oversees Steamtown, has been tied up in the budget battle in Washington.

According to the Steamtown National Historic Site Facebook page, it could be back open by Monday.

More than 800,000 federal employees were furloughed for 35 days over a political dispute over a border wall.
