Only 19th-century log structure still standing in Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.

Mail Carrier House WyoJones Pauline Baird Jones

The hubs says:

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, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. 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 for employees and National Park Service staff. This photo was taken in 2005 while the house was being stabilized as part of a preservation process. The house is on the National Registry of Historic Places as part of the Fort Yellowstone Historic District.

Perilously yours,
