National Park Week Quiz #1 Revealed: Bill Clinton’s Park Plus

National Park Week Quiz #1 required you to name 10 national parks whose names contain “stem words” identical to stem words in the name of President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site.

The stem of the park’s name was defined as the part that doesn’t include the unit designation or category, so you had these six words to work with: President, William, Jefferson, Clinton, Birthplace, and Home.

You were instructed not to include Roger Williams National Memorial, President’s Park, or Homestead National Monument of America. That leaves 13 national parks with names that contain one or more of these six words:

William Howard Taft National Historic Site

Prince William Forest Park

Thomas Jefferson Memorial

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial

Castle Clinton National Monument

Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site

Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park

George Washington Birthplace National Monument

Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site

Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site

Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site

Lincoln Home National Historic Site

Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park

Missed Rosie the Riveter! I knew it had to be something somewhat obscure!
And the hike was great, thanks for asking - Dry Creek Falls a few miles up the PCT in the Columbia Gorge. All those healthy endorphins probably helped in answering the quiz question!

Thanks for my best laugh of the morning, celbert. Rosie the Riveter doesn't make it to your list because Rosie is "somewhat obscure". This from a guy who lists Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site without missing a beat!

Well, the Woodson site was pretty recently designated, so that helped, but it actually took me awhile to remember the exact name of it. You're probably right that "obscure" might not be the best term to describe Rosie the Riveter, especially since I've actually been to it; I missed it mostly because I forgot the "World War II Home Front" part of its name.
