Marking 100 years of American history, the Grand Canyon Centennial Project – also known as “100 Years of Grand” – is both a celebration and exploration of one of America’s most fascinating national parks.
The project commemorates the upcoming centennial of the legislative creation of the Grand Canyon National Park in February 1919 with the goal to enhance public understanding of the park’s history.
A partnership between ASU Library, Cline Library at Northern Arizona University and the Grand Canyon National Park, this project makes accessible, for the first time, thousands of high-quality archival photographs and documents, chronicling the early history of the Grand Canyon.
Weaving together several decades of cultural, geospatial, entrepreneurial, documentary and administrative archival history, the Grand Canyon Centennial Project is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
