The Town Of Gardiner, Montana Was The First To Establish A National Park In America

When you think of Yellowstone National Park, you probably immediately associate it with Wyoming. This makes sense, as more than 90 percent of the park is located there. However, in southwest Montana, lies the town of Gardiner. And in Gardiner, you’ll find the North Entrance to Yellowstone. It’s the only year-round entrance (out of five) to the park and also the first-ever entrance to the first-ever national park established in America in 1872.
