Letter Opener

This letter opener was a souvenir from Yosemite National Park. Yosemite Valley was first legally protected in 1864, and officially made a National Park in 1890. The completion of the Tioga Road in 1915 provided Owens Valley residents a shorter route to visit Yosemite during the summer months.
