Advertised as a place "where the flowers and the glaciers meet," Paradise Inn opened on July 4, 1917. Here tourists arrived wearing long skirts and woolen traveling suits, "seeking a renewal of spirit in the vast world out-of-doors."
Today, entering the grand lobby or the dining room with the large timbers and massive stone fireplaces is like stepping back into an earlier era. The rustic style of architecture is typical of early National Park Service buildings. Now designated a National Historic Landmark, the Inn is shown here in 1920.
