Government shutdown impacts Vermont national park

Posted: Updated:
WOODSTOCK, Vt. -

The federal government is shutdown. Much of the debate is over Obamacare which takes effect Oct. 1, however in the aftermath of this standoff, national parks are now closed.

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Woodstock is one of them. The park's superintendent, Christina Marts, spent the last few days warning schools and tourists of this possibility. 

Marts said this month is a busy time especially for school visits. The park gets almost 20,000 visitors during the month of October. The park employs 26 people who will not be at work Oct. 1.
