Notes
Survey number HABS WA-232-A
Building/structure dates: 1914 initial construction
Significance: Building No. 1053 was built as the Wind River Experimental Station Director's Residence in 1914. Its significance lies in its relationship to the development of the Administrative Site, especially the Wind River Experiment Station. The early growth of this agency is reflected in this structure, the fourth built by the Experiment Station for its own use. It is one of two buildings that survive from the first wave of development by the Experiment Station that occurred prior to 1920. It has been determined eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places as it retains integrity of design, location, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association. The building embodies the feeling of the Arts and Crafts movement, common in residential construction at the time.
