Acadia is in the state of Maine and was originally founded in 1919 as Lafayette National Park. Billed as the "the first National Park East of the Mississippi," Acadia owes much of its existence to philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr. who financed many of the improvements found in the park today.

Each two-roll set consists of one roll of forty circulation quality quarters struck at the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia and one roll struck at the US Mint’s facility in Denver. The Mint will wrap each roll in special wrapping which indicates its face value and the specific strike held within along with the initial of the minting facility that produced them.
