$12M requested to reconstruct Glacier Park's Sperry Chalet

June 4, 2018View for printing

The National Park Service is moving forward with reconstruction at the same high-altitude site above Lake McDonald . The park envisions a construction schedule that spans two summers, beginning this June.

In the mid-May decision document, the Park Service said the rebuilt chalet's design will reflect its "period of significance" from 1914 to 1949 - and the visitor experience will be "very similar to what it has been for decades."

Architects and builders will use "as much of the remaining historic fabric" as possible and will replicate historic finishes where practicable.
