Notes
Survey number HABS WA-192
Building/structure dates: 1938 initial construction
Significance: The Glacier Ranger Station is an element of a National Register thematic group entitled "USDA Forest Service Administrative Buildings in the States of Oregon and Washington, Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps." In common with other buildings in the group, the Station typifies construction projects undertaken by the C.C.C. and signifies the aid to the local community provided by the work relief program. The building is also an exceptional example of the rustic architectural style developed by the Pacific Northwest Region of the Forest Service to impart agency identity, and signifies the Service's particular expression of this early twentieth century American style.
