The Lobby, Old Faithful Inn, Yellowstone Park, 1904-1905

Summary

Yellowstone National Park, established 1872, was America's first national park. Old Faithful Inn, a grand hotel built alongside Old Faithful geyser in 1903-4, was the first true rustic-style western resort. Architect Robert Reamer designed it to fit in with nature rather than--like other fancy resorts--to provide an escape from it. The interior continued the rustic look.
