Paradise Inn

I’ve lived here all my life and am still wow’d by the Park and the buildings. The building in the foreground is the Annex of Paradise Inn…at Paradise Valley. The main Paradise Inn building is to the left in the background.the  

The Inn was built in 1916-1917 at a cost of $91,000 (around $1,718,900 today).

This is an earlier shot. If you’re looking for a history of the building, just click HERE and it will take you to the National Park Service.

    National Park Inn at Longmire is not in this photo. I grew up in Longmire and started working in the National Park Inn, as a teenager, in 1943.

  4. These building are amazing, a few years back we stayed at Paradise Inn, and the architecture is Amazing. How it withstands winters amazes me too.
