Survey number HABS WI-347-D
Significance: The Florence Ranger District Administrative Site represents the only intact ranger district administrative site of the five which once existed within the Nicolet National Forest. The property illustrates the decentralized forest administration established by the Forest Service in its forests. Under the guidance of the forest supervisor's office and Region Nine Office, the district office oversaw the forest conservation and recreation development within its district. The Nicolet National Forest was created in 1933 as the Roosevelt Administration began its federal work relief programs. Much of the early development of the forest and many of these administrative sites including this example were completed using funds and labor from these Depression Era programs. Because they were erected in the same era, all of the five administrative sites in the Nicolet were erected using the same building style, functions, and standard plans.
