Significance: Building 111, Control Station, originally constructed as worker housing, has been greatly modified over the years for a variety of uses. It is now used as the hydrographer's office. Its significance derives from its contribution to an understanding of the historic character of the physical and social environment of the Control Station compound. The Bishop Creek System is considered significant for its role: (1) in the expansion of hydroelectric generation technology, (2) in the development of eastern California, and (3) in the development of long-distance power transmission and distribution.
