Yellowstone is the world's first national park. The park was established in 1872 by the United States Congress "for the preservation of" its many wonders and "for the enjoyment of the people," and now encompasses 2.2 million acres. The more than three million people from around the world who visit Yellowstone each year experience something more powerful than its founders ever envisioned.
