Historic Many Glacier Hotel

In the 1920s, large parties of tourist gathered on horseback at Many Glacier Hotel. The hotel was part of a network of chalets built a day's ride apart-a way for guest to cross the park's wild, roadless interior while spending nights in relative comfort and security. Sperry and Granite Park Chalets continue to play their historic roles by lodging overnight hikers.

A blend of rustic materials ans Swiss chalet style, the hotel's architecture expresses the paradox of Glacier National Park tourism: the attempt to balance development with the forces of wilderness. The Swiss motifs grew out of a campaign to attract vacationers to "America's Alps."
