1908 · Utah's First National Monument

Age 20

Natural Bridges National Monument was designated a National Monument in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt. It is Utah’s first National Monument but didn’t get many visitors until after the uranium boom of the 1950s. Today the Monument and its park became the first International Dark Sky Park certified by the International Dark-Sky Association.

Name Meaning

English: habitational name from a place in Cumbria, first recorded in 1220 in its present form. There is a chapel of St. Martin here, and the valley ( see Dale ) may be named from this. Alternatively, there may have been a landowner here called Martin, and the church dedication may be due to popular association of his name with that of the saint.
