Significance: The Fernow Experimental Forest bunkhouse, built in 1934 by members of Camp Parsons Civilian Conservation Corps, was one of the original administrative buildings 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; 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 Monogahela National Forest.
