      activity was on the Canadian side.

      Here's the complete list of American WHSs:
      United States
      Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site - Illinois
      Carlsbad Caverns National Park - New Mexico
      Chaco Culture - New Mexico
      Everglades National Park - Florida
      Grand Canyon National Park - Arizona
      Great Smoky Mountains National Park - Tennessee and North Carolina
      Hawaii Volcanoes National Park - Hawaii
      Independence Hall - Pennsylvania
      Kluane/Wrangell-St. Elias/Glacier Bay/Tatshenshini-Alsek - Alaska (shared with Canada)
      La Fortaleza and San Juan National Historic Site - Puerto Rico
      Mammoth Cave - Kentucky
      Mesa Verde National Park - Colorado
      Monticello and the University of Virginia in Charlottesville - Virginia
      Olympic National Park - Washington
      Redwood National and State Parks - California

      And apparently there's some intrigue on Everglades being taken off the list in 2007 at Bush's request, but put back on again very recently.
