7-cent Acadia

The 7-cent black National Parks stamp issued October 2, 1934, honors Acadia National Park, established in Maine in 1919 as Lafayette National Park and renamed Acadia in 1929. The park occupies Mount Desert Island, which features varied terrains—a rocky coastline, mountains, and forests. All terrains support a wide variety of wildlife. The stamp pictures the shoreline rock formation known as 'Great Head'.
