Inscription. A rich architectural history awaits as you explore Grand Canyon Village. Eclectic in nature, the village is a mix of early pioneer, Santa Fe Railroad, and National Park Service structures. Entrepreneurial-pioneers started building here in the early 1890s. The railroad and Fred Harvey Company added the grandest structures, starting in the early 20th century. The village was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Today, the National Park Service strives to preserve the village’s character for future generations.
