Answer: Yellowstone

The first US National Park was aptly the picturesque Yellowstone Caldera and surrounding countryside. Although it is now one of the busiest national parks in the United States, at the time the country was declared a national park, it had very few eyes on it.

Indeed, we can thank the untiring efforts of a man for the preservation of the region: Ferdinand V. Hayden. Hayden had explored part of the region in the late spring of 1

860 and was amazed at how diverse and beautiful the area was. He returned in 1871 with a huge team of surveyors, photographers and painters to document Yellowstone.

With evidence of the magnificent and diverse landscape, he returned to Washington, DC and presented this evidence to Congress and President Ulysses S. Grant. In 1872, President Grant signed the bill, which secured Yellowstone's position as a national park.
