Yellowstone became the first National Park in the world when it was signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872. The park is located primarily in Wyoming, though it also extends into Montana and Idaho, as well. Yellowstone is known for its wildlife and its many geothermal features, most notably the Old Faithful Geyser, one of the most popular attractions in the park.
