The contest is now over in the Yellowstone Romance Series.
What year did Yellowstone become a national park?
The answer: 1872 President Ulysses S. Grant signed into law the creation of the world's first national park as a "pleasuring ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people." The exact date was March 1, 1872.
In 1903, President Teddy Roosevelt laid the cornerstone to what was named the Roosevelt Arch, the northern entry point to the park from Gardiner, Montana. The arch is inscribed with words from the original act of dedication: "For the benefit and enjoyment of the people"
