The main line of the Great Northern Railway stretched from St. Paul, Minnesota, to Seattle, Washington, through the prairies and plains of North Dakota and Montana, over rugged Rocky Mountains and through the splendid canyons of the Cascades to the Pacific. But it was the sixty-mile stretch of rail from east of the Rockies through Montana's Marias Pass and along the Middle Fork of the Flathead River that lured people from all over the world to the conductor's call for "all aboard."
Glacier National Park and the Great Northern Railway became synonymous in the early 20th century. Original photographs, posters, menus, postcards, and other rare materials support this fascinating pictorial history of the creation and promotion of the park by Great Northern as railroad barons raced west and competed for precious territory to expand their empires.
