1915 - The Rocky Mountain National Park is established by an act of the United States Congress.



PLACE OF BEAUTY IS NEW NATIONAL PARK IN THE ROCKIES

Congress has just set aside 700 square miles of mountainous region near Denver which will hereafter be known as the Rocky Mountain National park. It include Estes park, which recently has been visited annually by 30,000 tourists, according to an estimate made by R. B. Marshall, chief of the U.S. geological survey.

"There is no predominant commanding natural feature in Estes park such as is to be found in the Crater lake, the Yellowstone, or along the Grand Canyon of the Colorado, but the region as a whole is as beautiful as any to be found in the world," declares Marshall.
