Notes
Survey number HABS WV-237-O
Significance: The Fernow Experimental Forest well house was built in 1934 by members of Camp Parsons Civilian Conservation Corps. It was a part of the original administrative complex for the Fernow Experimental Forest Branch Station, a part of the Appalachian Forest Experimental Station, headquartered in Ashville, NC. The station was founded in 1934 and named in honor of the famed forester Bernard Fernow. The staff of the Experimental Forest studied watershed and timber management on the nearby Elk Lick Run watershed. This is the only experimental forest in Monongahela National Forest.
