North Rim in Coconino County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Grand Canyon Lodge, A Legacy Rebuilt
Grand Canyon National Park
Through the severe winter of 1936-37, work crews labored to reconstruct the lodge using the standing limestone foundation. The redesigned Grand Canyon Lodge has a strictly rustic feel more adapted to a winter climate. It features cathedral ceilings and steeply pitched roofs, but preserves one of the primary attractions of the original lodge — the sun room. You join millions who came before you when you behold the grandeur of Grand Canyon for the first time through the windows of the sun room.
Erected by National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
