With the establishment of Mount Rainier National Park in 1899, Longmire became park headquarters. The site had previously served as James Longmires homestead, lodging, and mineral springs resort. Although park headquarters are no longer at Longmire, the original headquarters building houses a museum that tells the story of the early days of the park. All of Longmire is now designated a national historic district.

Longmire is located in the southwest corner of the park and is 6.5 miles (10.5 km) east of the Nisqually Entrance. See the Road Statuspage for current information about road access to Longmire and other park areas.

The Longmire Museum is open year-round, even in winter.
