Architect Robert Reamer designed
Yellowstone's Canyon Hotel, which
opened in 1911. When  Canyon
Village, its modern replacement,
opened in 1957, guests flooded
instead to the venerable old hotel, to
the dismay of "Mission 66" planners.
In 1959 Canyon Hotel and its
furnishings were sold for $25
salvage. This once-grand hotel
burned under what some consider
mysterious conditions in August 1960.
