Mail Carrier's House

The origins of the building that became known as the mail carrier’s house are a matter of debate, but it is significant as the only 19th century log structure still standing in Mammoth Hot Springs. Its rustic style is more typical of construction of the area and time than are the buildings put up by the U.S. Army for Fort Yellowstone. It was probably built in the mid-1890s, and over the years it has provided quarters for mail carriers as well as concessions employees and National Park Service staff.
