Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 28, 1987):
This Landmark was the first building in a National Park constructed in an architectural style harmonious with the grandeur of the surrounding landscape. Old Faithful Inn reflects Adirondack Rustic architectural idiom, but blown up to enormous proportions. Its seven-story high log lobby is unique in American architecture. Created with gnarled logs and rough sawn wood for the Northern Pacific Railroad, it has a sense of place as identifiable as the Park itself.

Condition:
The Old Faithful Inn is in good condition.

There are no changes to the landmark.
