Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 31, 2003):
Jackson Lake Lodge, completed in 1955, represents a break with the traditional rustic style of architecture used in the National Park Service. Designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood, who previously had designed the Ahwahnee, Bryce Canon and North Rim Grand Canyon lodges, Jackson Lodge combines some elements of these earlier rustic style buildings with the modern International style. This breakthrough opened the way for many modernistic visitor centers and accomodations in National Parks built under the Mission 66 initiative to accommodate major increases in visitation after WWII.

Condition:
This NHL is in good condition. Grand Teton Lodge Company, the concessionaire who operates the property, routinely maintains the thirty-eight contributing historic buildings and the cultural landscape.

There are no changes to the NHL.
