Marble Canyon Lodge

A tourist lodge and tradking post have operated
near this site since 1929. Without them, travel
through this isolated region would have been
far more difficult. Marble Canyon Lodge was
already in operation when the historic Navajo
Bridge was dedicated on June 14, 1929. The lodge
was financed initially by Lorenzo Hubbell and
operated by Buck Lowrey. Hubbell assumed
ownership in 1937, and Kyle Bales purchased the
lodge in 1949. In 1959, Jane Bales Foster
inherited it. The Foster family continues to
operate Marble Canyon Lodge. The original lodge
building has been restored and stands 0.4 km
(1/4 mile) west of this marker.
