Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 18, 1997):
The town plan for Grand Canyon divided the village into discrete residential, commercial, and civic areas. It also included a consistent architectural idiom, a hierachy of street sections, and a central plaza with the village's major public buildings sited around it. These and other features of the plan make it not only an exceptional example of NPS town planning, but a highly significant example of American town planning in the 1920s in general. No other example of NPS planning from this era combines the historic associations, size, artistic significance, and excellent state of preservation as does the Grand Canyon Village.
