Significance: The Wawona Hotel complex was established on the homestead of Galen Clark, one of the Yosemite region's earliest settlers and pioneers. Clark was appointed the first protector of the Yosemite State Park in 1864. He and his successors built many of the first roads in the region and operated a stagecoach line in conjunction with the hotel. The Wawona has served as a major California resort hotel for over a century and has housed thousands of guests visiting the Yosemite Valley. The hotel complex was also the summer home of the nationally known American landscape artist, Thomas Hill, between 1886 and 1908.
