Explore Historic Sites in the Eclipse's "Path of Totality"
Get your popcorn ready and your sunglasses on, because the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental United States since 1979 is coming on Monday, August 21.
It's going to be one for the ages. The eclipse's path of totality (in which the full eclipse is visible) will make landfall exclusively in the United States for the first time since the nation's founding, traveling from the Pacific Northwest to the Southeast. A partial eclipse will be visible elsewhere.
If you're lucky enough to be near the path, why not take in the history-making eclipse from a historic place? Below are some of our favorite historic sites in the eclipse's path of totality.
