Welcome to Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park

Green Pastures and Green Mountains

Walk through one of Vermont's most beautiful landscapes, under the shade of sugar maples and 400-year-old hemlocks, across covered bridges and alongside rambling stone walls. 

This is a landscape of loss, recovery, and conservation. This is a story of stewardship, of people taking care of places - sharing an enduring connection to land and a sense of hope for the future.

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is a United States National Historical Park near Woodstock, Vermont. The park preserves the site where Frederick Billings established a managed forest and a progressive dairy farm. 

The name honors Billings and the other owners of the property: George Perkins Marsh and Laurence and Mary French Rockefeller. 

The Rockefellers transferred the property to the federal government in 1992. It is the only unit of the United States National Park System in Vermont (except for the Appalachian Trail).

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park was awarded the first Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification of a United States national park by the Rainforest Alliance's SmartWood program in August 2005. 

This certification made Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller only the second United States federal land to receive such certification for sustainable forest management.

You will find the picnic area near the visitor center.

Did You Know?
In the early 1860s Vermonter Frederick Billings, then living in California, purchased and sent photographs of Yosemite Valley to influential eastern friends to make the case for its preservation. You can see these photographs, and paintings of Yosemite, at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NHP.
