Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 28, 1987):
The Great Northern Railway Buildings National Historic Landmark is comprised of five building complexes: Belton Chalet, Granite Park Chalet, Many Glacier Hotel, Sperry Chalet, and Two Medicine Store. Together they exemplify a distinct architectural style being used on a massive scale for park concessions development (c. 1913-15). This National Historic Landmark probably contains the largest collection of Swiss-style buildings and the only U.S. example of the use of a European system of hostelries built a day's hike or ride apart.

Condition:
The Sperry Chalet, Granite Park Chalet, and Belton Chalet are generally in good condition.
