Notes
Survey number HABS WA-232-F
Building/structure dates: 1942 initial construction
Significance: Building No. 2327 has been determined eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. This building embodies the rustic style of architecture associated with the Forest Service and the CCC in the Pacific Northwest. The Pole Shed is a fair example of the construction projects undertaken by the CCC and signifies aid to the local community provided by the emergency work relief program through employment of youth and experienced craftsmen, purchase of building materials and camp supplies, and personal experiences of enrollees. The property exemplifies the rustic architectural idiom developed by the Forest Service identity and to represent its purposes and ideals, and signifies the agency's particular interpretation of a thought. Possessing the qualities of rustic design and execution, the structure is a good example of an architectural property invested with special aesthetic values by the agency that created it.
