HISTORY OF YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK


"The park is just a howling wilderness of 3,000 square miles, full of all imaginable freaks of a firing nature. Now I know what it is to sit enthroned and look at the clouds at sunset."
                                               -Rudyard Kipling 1907

Today the National Park Service continues to welcome visitors to Yellowstone from every nation on earth. Record-breaking visitation numbers are almost routine as more than 3.5 million people pass through the park every year. Still, the National Park Service retains vestiges of its early days in the park. From the WWI era campaign hats to the Rangers’ knowledge of geology, plants, and animals. The National Park Service can be proud of the 100+ years professional management that they continue to bring to the public in Yellowstone.
