In 1919, just seven years after Arizona became a state, Congress established Grand Canyon National Park. This was only the fifteenth national park to be established in the United States. However, the Grand Canyon National Park was to become one of the country’s premiere tourism destinations. By 2017, it was welcoming over six million visitors per year, second only to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
In recognition of the park reaching its one hundredth anniversary in 2019, the Arizona Department of Transportation produced a special Grand Canyon National Park Centennial marker. They were primarily displayed at the state lines, though you could also find them at seemingly-random locations throughout the state.
Our Grand Canyon National Park Centennial sign is a faithful recreation of the original markers installed throughout Arizona. It depicts the splendor of the Grand Canyon in beautiful reds, blues, and oranges. Our recreation is flat printed on heavy-gauge steel, with completely accurate layout and fonts. We’ve made it available in sizes ranging from 12 inches square up to 36 inches square; all sizes are precise rescalings of the original 12 foot freeway style sign down to a much more manageable size.
This is a non-reflective sign—perfect for ordinary display, indoors or outdoors. Show your love for the outdoors and the great American West by adding this marker to your den, garage, man cave, or any room with Western-themed decor. (If you would like a version in a size not listed here, or a reflective one, please ask; custom orders are our specialty!)
