Glacier Park Lodge Pre-opening

#ThrowbackThursday: Here's a photo captured in 1913 before Glacier Park Lodge opened to the public. The large 40-ft Douglas Fir trees used for the interior columns were transported by train from the Pacific Northwest, where the 500-800 year-old trees were harvested. The trees had to be imported because trees rarely grow to that size in Montana.

You can still view these massive columns inside Glacier Park Lodge today. The last day of the 2013 season is this Sunday, September 22nd.

To book a stay at Glacier Park Lodge in 2014, call 892-2525.
