Tuolumne Meadows Mess Hall (Visitor Center) – Yosemite National Park CA

Description

Originally built by the CCC as a mess hall, the National Park Service converted the building for use as the Tuolumne Meadows Visitor Center.

This building is a good example of National Park Service rustic park architecture of the 1930’s. It was constructed with native materials to blend with the environment, and reflects hand crafted techniques.
