The Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon ca. 1910One of Arizona’s most celebrated natural wonders is the Grand Canyon National Park, established on February 26, 1919, by President Woodrow Wilson.

The Grand Canyon first gained federal recognition in 1893, when President Benjamin Harrison authorized the creation of the Grand Canyon National Forest. Park tourism began in 1901, when the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad line brought visitors to the South Rim. In 1905, the El Tovar Hotel opened on the South Rim to meet the demand of increased tourism to the Canyon. Praised by President Theodore Roosevelt as, “the one great sight which every American should see,” the Grand Canyon remains one of Arizona’s most popular tourist attractions.
