***NOTICE***

Please note that the Yellowstone Historical Society is not connected with Yellowstone National Park. YHS does not maintain or install any markers related to Yellowstone National Park. In the past people have sent us items they wish to donate or contribute to the preservation of Yellowstone National Park’s history; YHS is not the organization to send that to. We suggest contacting the National Park Service and ask them where the best place is to send it.
