The National Park Service was founded in 1916 to oversee the nation's historic parks and sites. It was created "to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wildlife therein, and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." Today the National Park Service is in charge of 409 units, including 78 National Historic Sites, 50 National Historical Parks, and 30 National Memorials.
