Text of sign:


At Guard


Protecting Yellowstone's wildlife and natural wonders was the primary function of the Army.  An important part of this duty was 

managing the growing visitation to the park and watching for "shady characters."


Park roads were once aligned so that the guardhouse controlled traffic into Yellowstone from the north.  Here soldiers contacted 

each party and entered the name of the driver, passengers, and type of rig into a large ledger.  Guns not held at the guardhouse 

were sealed on the spot. They were checked at each outpost enroute, where soldiers certified on a form that the seal remained 

intact. Before visitors left the park, the form was scrutinized at an exit station.
