Notes
Survey number HAER MN-67-A
Significance: The Leech Lake Dam Tender's Residence is one of two remaining original dam tender's dwellings at the Mississippi Headwaters dam sites. Until recently, when the Corps of Engineers decided it was no longer necessary for personnel to live on the dam site, dam tenders and their families lived in the houses. The dam tender's dwelling was one of many original structures that formed a complex at each of the dam sites, which included service buildings, root cellars, chicken coops, barns and the dam tender's office. This complex of structures allowed dam personnel and their families to be self-sufficient. The Leech Lake Residence was the longest dam tender's dwelling built by the Corps at a Headwaters dam site. It is a ten-room, two-story building of simple frame construction.
