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. / The single-room Shed is a one-story outbuilding, 6.5 feet (E-W) by 4.5 feet. It measures 6.5 feet from the ground to the peak of the roofline above the door. Designed and used for equipment storage, it was without plumbing or electricity. The shed was conveniently located between the blacksmith shop and the barn in the working portion of the complex.
