OLD FAITHFUL INN at Yellowstone National Park
Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park is a stunningly beautiful portrait of the first "great lodge" in America's first National Park. The parks magnificent natural wonders and the craftsman details of an architectural icon of the West are captured in the magnificent photographs. The story is a vivid account of the birth of our first park and the struggle to define its landmark building as a truly American design.
In 1988, Old Faithful Inn was nearly lost in Yellowstone's most treacherous fire. An exterior sprinkler, installed the year before, drenched the roof and volunteers beat sparks out. As the flames raced over the building, the Inn survived.
