Roosevelt Arch

The Roosevelt Arch.

The Roosevelt Arch is an arch situated at the northern entrance of Yellowstone National Park. It's fifty feet high and was dedicated to president Theodore Roosevelt in 1903. It was the first entrance at the park (there are now five). Designed by Robert Reamer (the famed architect who also created the Old Faithful Inn), the arch is labeled with the words "For the benefit and enjoyment of the people". The arch is made of basalt rock.
