One of the prominent legends in America's hospitality industry was Fred Harvey, a native born Londoner. He founded the Fred Harvey Company in 1876 and was instrumental in providing finer dining facilities for stops along the Santa Fe Railroad route. He was well known for the "Harvey Girls," those young, attractive, well-clad women who cheerfully served the travelers. A bit of that history is preserved at the Bright Angel Lodge's History room, which opened in the late 1960s. Exhibits on display include memorabilia such as early menus, a carriage, pictures and plates. Postcards and other items are on sale. Admission is free.
