USNPS moving quickly to rebuild wildfire-destroyed Sperry Chalet in Glacier NP
Moving at a rapid pace to see the Sperry Chalet rebuilt as soon as possible, the National Park Service has committed to rebuilding the historic lodge in place in the backcountry of Glacier National Park.
Specifically, the Park Service said Thursday in a release, the structure will be rebuilt at its original site within the original stone masonry walls. The design will rehabilitate the chalet dormitory reflecting its period of significance (1914-1949). Some critical updates will include meeting current building codes where applicable, and improvements to life safety features including seismic bracing and fire resistant materials.
