Most People Don’t Know America’s First National Park Is Right Here In Arkansas

If someone asked you about the first national park in the U.S., you’d probably think about Yellowstone, right? Well, you’d be sort-of correct in thinking that way. Yes, Yellowstone was the first federally protected land to be called a national park. But no, it was not the first national park. America’s actual first national park may miss out on some fame because it predated what we now call the National Park Service, but that doesn’t make Hot Springs National Park any younger than Yellowstone.
