National Historic District

The Old Faithful Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It includes the Old Faithful Inn and many of the surrounding buildings. The district is historically significant because of its rustic architecture and its role in the development of concessions to accommodate growing tourism in the early 1900s. The original Old Faithful Snow Lodge was built in 1958 and housed a dorm, restaurant, bar, and gift shop. It became winter lodging for visitors in 1971. The current snow lodge, opened in 1999, sits largely in the footprint of the original lodge.
