Bright Angel Lodge
Bright Angel Hotel (below) was built around 1895 to
serve stagecoach passengers. In 1905 the hotel
became Bright Angel Camp, which eventually
included cabins and an adjoining tent village.
In 1935 the Fred Harvey Company replaced the camp
with Bright Angel Lodge, which stands here now.
The lodge is one of six historic structures at Grand
Canyon designed by architect Mary Colter.

standing, in 1932, shortly before
the old hotel building was torn down
and Bright Angel Lodge was built.
