Dedicated in 1916 to become the first eastern national park, Acadia National Park in Maine is built on land donated by early 20th century visionaries. Most of the park is on Mount Desert Island, a patchwork of parkland, private property, and seaside villages. Sea and mountain meet at this park, which is home to the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast as well as coastal landscapes. Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park have remained in the center of Native American Wabanaki traditional homelands for thousands of years. Today, visitors come to Acadia's sacred landscape to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and view the scenery, plants, birds and animals.
