In 1890, Rock Creek Park became the third national park, following Yellowstone and Mackinac, due to its importance throughout history. Before Western settlement, the Native Americans made tools from the rock found at Rock Creek, and hunted and fished there to survive. Then, English settlers used the land for tobacco farming, and later, during the Civil War, trees were cut down and used to barricade pathways.
Now, Rock Creek is used for recreation, and it’s celebrating its 125th year of being part of the National Park Service. Our Rock Creek Park 125th Anniversary Hiking Medallion symbolizes Rock Creek’s importance throughout history. Pin it to your hiking stick to commemorate Rock Creek Park’s 125th year.
