This month, Portable Restroom Trailers provided facility services to Kings Mountain National Military Park. Two of our restroom trailers will help the park with the thousands of visitors it receives to the National Military Park and the Military Cemetery.
Kings Mountain National Military Park, located near Blacksburg, SC was established to commemorate the Battle of Kings Mountain. During the Revolutionary War, the American Patriots won a pivotal victory against American Loyalists. The battle, fought in 1780, was unique as it was one of the few battles fought entirely by Americans, with no assistance from British troops.
The National Military Park was established in 1931 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. Visitors to the park can appreciate many historical demonstrations, films, and a 1.5 mile battlefield trail. Other special events are held throughout the year to educate visitors on military and life skills and to honor the losses during the battle.
The arrival of two restroom trailers in September comes at an opportune time. On October 7th, the Park will hold its annual ceremony on the anniversary of the 1780 battle. The day includes a wreath laying cereDSCN1038mony at the Kings Mountain Monument and a program in the amphitheatre. All weekend, guests will be able to experience musket and rifle demonstrations, children’s militia drills, 18th century medicine, cooking and music demonstrations, and more.
To make sure no one is deprived of experiencing the history of Kings Mountain, the Military Park’s facilities are completely wheelchair accessible. This means that when they added additional restrooms with one of our restroom trailers, wheelchair accessibility was a necessity. The Comfort Series Elite ADA Plus 2 is one of our most popular handicap accessible restroom trailers. It includes a unisex ADA restroom plus two individual restroom suites to accommodate all guests.
Our ADA-compliant restroom trailers can also come with a unique hydraulics system that allows the entire restroom trailer and ramp to lower to the ground. This design adds an extra level of comfort for handicapped guests as it results in shorter ramps and a smaller overall footprint.
PRT is proud to aid Hydra Engineering in honoring the sacrifices made at Kings Mountain and the great work the National Military Park continues to do.
