Acadia National Park was a national park that covered much of Mount Desert Island prior to the Great War.

Background

Although tourists to the region go back to the mid 1850s this park was created from over a decade long Hancock County public land trust. Including land donated from Boston brahmin. The park was officially established as the Sieur de Monts National Monument by President Woodrow Wilson on July 8, 1916.[1]

On February 26, 1919, it became a national park, and was renamed the name Lafayette National Park in honor of the Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette. The park's last name change occurred on January 19, 1929, in honor of the former French colony of Acadia.[1]

As one of the oldest national parks east of the Mississippi, Acadia National Park attracted visitors year round. Despite the severity of the resource crisis, the park's rugged wilderness remained nearly[2] unspoiled. Hunting and fishing were strictly controlled and required licenses to be purchased from Park authorities.[3] The Acadia Observatory, sitting on the southern edge of the Park, was a particularly popular destination due to low light pollution.[4]

Appearances

The Acadia National Park is mentioned only in the Fallout 4 add-on Far Harbor.
