Glacier National Park's historic buildings and structures are listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, some individually and others grouped in historic districts. The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the nation's places that are worthy of preservation. To meet eligibility requirements, a historic property must be significant to our history in architecture, archaeology, engineering, or culture. Buildings must convey a sense of time and place and are generally at least 50 years old.
Among the 375 historic properties in Glacier National Park are six National Historic Landmarks: Going-to-the-Sun Road, Lake McDonald Lodge, Many Glacier Hotel, Granite Park Chalet, Sperry Chalet, and the Two Medicine Store. National Historic Landmarks are nationally significant historic places designated by the Secretary of the Interior because they possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States.
