This was done though the Jackson Hole Inc, which is a non-profit organization. On August of the same year, the Virgin Islands National Park was established through a legislation that was passed on the US Congress. Part of this move declared that the Park’s holdings on St. John cannot go beyond 9,485 acres and St. John has the land measurement totaling to 12,500 acres. Through its humble beginnings, the place is now very famous because it has been developed for the enjoyment of both tourists and locals.
