Notes
Survey number HABS ID-65
Significance: The Keeper of the National Register has determined that the station is eligible under the criteria set forth in 36 CFR 60.4 a&c. The Keeper stated: "The Buffalo Ranger Station is associated with a significant theme in American history, the major/Federal recovery effort during the Depression era, and is of sufficient age to permit an objective evaluation of its significance. The ranger station is locally important because it is the only extant complex constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the Targhee National Forest that utilized log siding as a building material. A standard plan was followed in the construction of the major buildings and a landscape architect designed a site plan for the placement of the structures. The property retains sufficient integrity of design, materials and workmanship to reflect this conscious planning process and represents both the land management philosophy of the Forest Service and the material accomplishments of the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Depression era."
