    Roosevelt Arch

    Roosevelt Arch is the north entrance's gateway into Yellowstone National Park. This is the original entrance into the park. Visitors would take the train into Montana, and ride in stagecoaches to this entrance. This Arch was created in 1903. President Theodore Roosevelt was visiting the park at the time. He placed the cornerstone for the arch, hence it took his name. The arch is inscribed with the words "For the benefit and enjoyment of the people" which is taken from the Organic Act of 1872, which made Yellowstone our nation's first national park.
