Significance: The Leavenworth Ranger Station Office #2084 is part of a thematic group listed on the National Register of Historic Places, comprised of U.S. Forest Service administrative structures built between 1933-1942 under the auspices of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) on Forest Service lands in the States of Washington and Oregon. Constructed in 1938-39 by the CCC (with the assistance of temporary Forest Service employees), the Leavenworth Ranger Station Office is significant for its association with a period of dynamic change in Forest Service administrative policy, a physical example of the Forest Service's transition from custodial supervision to extensive management and resource development, and with national work-relief programs like the CCC, and the embodiment of the distinctive characteristics of the rustic architectural idiom developed by the Forest Service in the Pacific Northwest during the Depression era for their administrative buildings. Typical of the Region 6 rustic-style was the Leavenworth Ranger Station's lavish use of wood in an attempt to blend the office with its natural setting. Other character-defining features include gable roofs and dormers, multi-paned windows symmetrically placed, projecting porches with timber posts and brackets, and decorative shutters with pine tree cutouts.
