As one of Canada’s oldest and largest national parks, established in 1907, Jasper was once seen as an island of civilization in a vast wilderness. More recently, The Jasper Park Information Centre, located in the middle of the Jasper town site, is a National Historic Site. The building’s river rock walls and log rafters reflect Jasper National Park’s forests and mountains. Since its construction in 1913, this building has been a landmark and focal point of the town of Jasper, helping define the architectural character of the Rocky Mountain community.
