Description
This educational program is a series of 4 clips documenting lodges in the National Parks. This series features interviews, narration, and archival photos about the history of National Parks and the lodges that host visitors. The series begins with the founding of Yellowstone National Park in 1872 and how railroads allowed access to National Parks like never before. This influx of tourism allowed for the building of the Old Faithful Inn grand lodge in 1904 located in the upper geyser basin, designed by architect Robert Reamer. An interpreter tours an original section of the Inn, that has been restored to allow visitors to stay in rooms that have been preserved to their original design. The program continues to tour the design features of the ceiling, lobby, and rooms noting how Reamer drew inspiration from Yellowstone. Then lodges are explored at the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, and Bryce Canyon National Park, as well as these parks? natural and cultural histories. The program specifically focuses on what architects drew on in the natural landscape to influence the design of these structures. The next segment looks at Glacier Park, its architecture, and its employment of Blackfeet Native Americans and Native Americans relationship with the Glacier National Park lodge. Additionally explored is Mount Rainier National Park, the sense of place it gives to the Pacific Northwest, and the history and architecture of the Paradise Inn. Last explored in the lodge at Crater Lake.
