Acadia National Park

A century ago, a group of residents banded together to gift some of their backyard to the federal government for protection, making Acadia the first national park created entirely from private land donations. Summer resident John D. Rockefeller Jr. gifted 10,000 acres to Acadia, and funded the construction of a network of car-less carriage roads.
Amazing things can happen when we work together.
