NPS History

The National Park Service has a long history since its founding in 1916.  At Park Chasers we believe it’s just as important to enjoy the parks as it is to be a strong advocate for their protection.

Here are our favorite posts about the history of the NPS, some of its most famous men and women, and the centennial celebration in 2016.
