Nov 24, 2020 04:17PM ● By By Anne Richter Arnold
Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park (MBR) has a long and distinctive history as being the place where the conservation movement in American started, and that legacy has now been honored. The park was selected to represent Vermont for the United States Mint America the Beautiful quarter, which was officially released to the public in September.

The boyhood home of one of America’s first conservationists, George Perkins Marsh, and later the home of Frederick Billings, MBR is the only national park dedicated to telling the story of conservation history and the evolving nature of land stewardship in America. The property was given to the American people by its most recent owners, Laurance S. and Mary French Rockefeller.
