Visit Parks

Since 1916, the American people have entrusted the National Park Service with the care of their national parks. With the help of volunteers and park partners, we safeguard these more than 400 places and share their stories with more than 275 million visitors every year. Find a few of those stories here and then Find a Park to find more of all Americans' stories.

Women’s history is everywhere! The presence of women is more obvious at some historic sites over others, including at the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument in Washington, D.C., the Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historic Park in California, and the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in New York. But almost every place in America has been influenced by women. Discover the obvious - and not so obvious -women’s history by exploring National Parks and Historic Sites.
