People live at the Grand Canyon? Interpreting the South Rim community

Grand Canyon is a world-famous natural wonder. The South Rim is also home to a community of people whose livelihoods revolve around the canyon. Exhibits at Verkamp’s Curio Store (now a National Park Service visitor center) celebrate this rich and diverse community, engaged in preservation and tourism since the late 1800s.
