Early view of Old Faithful Inn
The Old Faithful Inn was a popular favorite from its opening day in 1904. The Wild West had long
before been subdued, but the Inn offered tourists from the eastern United States and countries
throughout the world a place to stay that exactly fit their conceptions of how the west should be.
Those early, often wealthy tourists found a comfortable rusticity that allowed them to experience
adventure in the far-away land of geysers without demanding too much of them. Then, as now, the
Old Faithful Inn left its guests with memories they would hold dear for the rest of their lives.
