THE UNION PACIFIC DINING LODGE AKA
When the trains carrying tourists began to arrive in West Yellowstone it quickly became apparent to the Union Pacific officials that there needed to be a place close to the depot where the arriving guests could relax and grab a bite to eat either before touring Yellowstone or after their return.
In 1908 the first eating establishment known as “The Beanery” was constructed. It was approximately 1000 feet west of the depot and housed the kitchen and serving area.
