Logan Pass Visitor Center
The Logan Pass Visitor Center is located at the summit of Logan Pass on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, which traverses 50 miles across the entire width of Glacier National Park (the road itself is a National Historic Landmark). It was built in 1966 and designed according to the style called for in the Mission 66 program, which was an effort to expand and update facilities in the national parks for the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the National Park Service. Broad, sloping roofs and the use of native stone were the features of the Mission 66 style. The center offers parking, restrooms and an outdoor interactive exhibit about the sub-alpine ecosystem.
