Hopi House

In 1905, the US Congress placed Grand Canyon under the protection of the US Forest Service, and the Harvey company opened El Tovar Hotel and "Hopi House" craft shop in the same year. Architect Mary Colter designed Hopi House to authentically resemble a two-story cluster of rooms in Oraibi, the ancient Hopi pueblo on Black Mesa in Northern Arizona.
