The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is the only national park to focus on conservation history and the evolving nature of land stewardship in America. Opened in June 1998, Vermont's first national park preserves and interprets the historic Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller property. The park is named for George Perkins Marsh, Frederick Billings and his granddaughter, Mary French Rockefeller and her husband, Laurance S. Rockefeller.

Tours are given of the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller mansion and the surrounding 550-acre forest. The mansion contains an extensive art collection with American landscape paintings in the mid to late 1800's. The forest has been actively managed for wood products, public recreation, aesthetics, education and ecological values for more than a century, making it one of the oldest planned and continuously managed woodlands in America.
