Notes
Survey number HAER CA-189-B
Significance: Butt Valley Dam Gate Tender's Barn was built in the early days of dam construction at Butt Valley and was then part of a town site known as Camp 5. Due to later dam construction and the rising waters of the Butt Valley reservoir, the barn was moved to its current location south of the Butt Valley Dam Gate Tender's House. Although simple and typical in design, the barn is one of the oldest standing structures associated with the era of hydroelectric development in Butt Valley.
