Notes
Survey number HABS OR-180
Building/structure dates: 1930 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1936 subsequent work
National Register Number: 86000824
Significance: Structures in the Butte Falls Ranger Station compound were built (or, in the case of Building 2200, the Fire Warehouse, remodeled) by crews of Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees. Construction of the Butte Falls compound was one of many Pacific Northwest examples of the significant-scale Federal public works projects on the national forests during the Great Depression. These buildings exemplify the Pacific Northwest's Forest Service administrative structures of the Depression-era that employed the "Cascadian" or "rustic" style of architecture. Due to these qualities, the CCC-built Butte Falls Ranger Station compound buildings, including the Fire Warehouse, were listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
