Historic names to be restored to Yosemite NP sites after trademark lawsuit settled with concessioner

A years-long trademark dispute that caused Yosemite National Park to rename the historic place names of some of its most popular lodging and dining locations has ended, freeing the National Park Service to restore iconic names such as The Ahwahnee and Curry Village to sites in the park.

The Park Service on Monday announced that DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite, Inc. (Delaware North), a former concessionaire at the park, will transfer trademarks and service marks at issue in the lawsuit to Yosemite Hospitality, LLC (Aramark), the current concessionaire, as part of a settlement that included the U.S. government.
