Notes
Survey number HABS ID-110-K
Building/structure dates: 1933 initial construction
Significance: The Hornet Ranger Station forms important historical associations with two federal agencies: the U.S. Forest Service and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Both of these agencies were instrumental in the regional development of the West during the first half of the twentieth century. / This structure is the east bridge across Mill Creek and was designed for vehicular traffic entering the residential portion of the complex. It was built in 1933 as part of a cooperative project between personnel of the Weiser National Forest and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The bridge measures approximately 12 feet square and is anchored by two rectangular slabs of concrete; one on each bank of Mill Creek. The wooden structure consists of Douglas fir logs and timber bolted together and covered with fir boards. It is aligned with the driveway to the Garage (HABS ID-110-C). The bridge was constructed from a modified "Plan R-4 #121."
