Fodor's Review

The Kolb brothers began building their photographic workshop and residence in 1904, a time when no pipeline meant Emery Kolb descended 3,000 feet each day to get water to develop his prints; he operated the studio until he died in 1976 at age 95. Today the building provides a view of Indian Garden and houses a gallery with changing painting, photography, and crafts exhibitions. There's also a small Grand Canyon Association store here. During the winter months, a ranger-led tour of the studio illustrates the role the Kolb brothers had in the development of the Grand Canyon. Call ahead to sign up for the tour.
