On this day in history, September 25, 1890, Congress establishes Sequoia National Park in California

Sequoia National Park was founded on this day in history, Sept. 25, 1890, as a national park in the United States.

The park was created through legislation signed by President Benjamin Harrison, as the National Park Service (NPS) indicates.

Sequoia National Park was explicitly created to protect a living organism: Sequoiadendron giganteum, or the “giant sequoia” tree. 

As of 2022, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks receive about 1.5 million visitors each year.
