Old Faithful Inn - Yellowstone National Park - Wyoming


Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park

Old Faithful Inn is a massive building within a short viewing distance of Old Faithful Geyser, the most famous geyser in the United States. The building is an exposed log and wood-frame structure of rustic design and gigantic proportions: nearly 700 feet in length and a central core seven stories high. The building was constructed in three major phases: the 1903 original section with the imposing gable roof, dining room and kitchen wings to the south, and small guest-room wings to the east and west; the 1913-14 east wing; and the 1927 west wing. The building faces north, oriented toward the old "circuit road" rather that toward the geyser. The building was designed by architect Robert Reamer.
  

                          

It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987. In 1988 the inn was seriously threatened by the massive North Fork Fire, but was saved by the actions of firefighters, volunteers, and a sprinkler system which was installed on the roof the previous year.
  

   
The high-range rooms in this establishment were renovated in 1998 and 1999. The Inn is now over 100 years old, and celebrated its centennial in 2004. In the same year, a massive, multi-million dollar renovation project was begun and completed in 2008. Today, the building meets current seismic codes, and has new wiring, plumbing, and heating systems. Leftover damage from the 1959 earthquake was finally repaired, and floors and roofing were replaced. The floor surrounding the large fireplace in the main lobby has been lowered by nearly a foot to return it to Reamer's original design. Wherever possible, appearances and layouts were restored to their original configurations.
