Grant Village Area Historic Highlights
West Thumb Ranger Station
Built in 1925, with the open breezeway enclosed in 1966, the West Thumb Ranger Station is an excellent example of historic architecture associated with ranger stations in Yellowstone.
The shoreline of West Thumb is the location of several Native American hearth sites providing evidence that native peoples once used this area as a travel route, camping ground, and food-gathering area.

Even though the animals of Yellowstone seem tame they are still wild. Feeding the animals is not permitted in any way, and all visitors must keep 100 yards away from wolves and bears, and 25 yards from other animals.
