Grows in the longest road in the U.S., The National Park-to-Park HighwayThis Welcome Center's entrance axis aligns with and pays tribute to the Yellowstone and National Park-to-Park highways. The Yellowstone Highway was an unpaved "auto trail" established in 1915 that was mapped, maintained, and promoted by local businesses and Good Roads Clubs. It ran from Denver, Colorado, to Yellowstone National Park by way of Rocky Mountain National Park, plus Cheyenne, Douglas, Casper, and Cody. Connecting two national parks, this historic route sparked the idea of linking all national parks of the western United States with one, scenic road. Inaugurated in 1920, the resultant National Park-to-Park Highway absorbed the old Yellowstone Highway, bringing more national park tourists along the axis preserved at this site.
