Cowboys & Indians


HERE’S A LEGEND ABOUT A MASON WHO, Canyon’s South Rim in 1935, fell in love with a female employee of the El Tovar Hotel, a Grand Canyon Village resort owned by the Fred Harvey Company. At the time, she was living in the property’s all-girls dormitory. To show his affection, the federal Civilian Conservation Corps Company 819 worker placed a heart-shaped rock in the wall so the girl could see it from her room window. At night, the man would leave a lighted candle next to the stone heart to ensure its visibility. The Brown Building is gone, but the gift the smitten mason left for his beloved remains. It sits between the El Tovar and another Grand Canyon Village hotel property. There are other enduring mysteries at the El Tovar, including vanishing apparitions and a well-appointed, unknown gentleman who welcomes guests to holiday parties.
