Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park

Pursuant to legislation passed by the Congress of the United States, President Hoover issued a proclamation establishing the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park established in 1932.. Similar action was taken by the Canadian Government, and representatives of both countries were present at Glacier Park, Mont., on June 18, 1932, when appropriate dedication ceremonies were held.

The purpose of this action was to commemorate the record of long-standing peace and good will between the two countries. For purposes of administration, the component parts of the Peace Park each retain its nationality and individuality and each unit will continue to function as it has in the past.
