The sign has photos of the site and the architect and reads:

"Wonderland's Architect

Inspired by surroundings, Robert Reamer
captured the spirit of the landscape in his
architectural designs.

Arriving in Yellowstone in 1903 to build the Old Faithful Inn,
Reamer and his handy craftsmen worked through the winter
months to ready it for guests in June 1904. Its rustic character
created from native wood and stone, set an architectural
standard for luxury accommodations--- a relaxed atmosphere
that blended with the landscape.

The Old Faithful Inn was only one of Reamer's many
creations. Whether designing a new building or renovating
an old one, Reamer's innovative style varied from one project
to another. He designed more than 30 Yellowstone projects
between 1903 and 1937. Eighteen of those continue to grace
Yellowstone in all major areas of the park."
