Notes
Survey number HAER WY-18-A
Building/structure dates: 1926 initial construction
Significance: These structures are associated with events that have made significant contributions to the broad patterns of our history, i.e., early 20th century mining for precious metals in Wyoming and the western United States. Two log cabins were built face-to-face and were connected by a 7-feet wide breezeway. The west cabin measured 15 feet north-south by 17 feet east-west, with window in the north and south facades and a door in the west facade. The cabins are constructed with logs hewn on the inside and used square notching and mud chinking. The west cabin had a fireplace on the interior west wall. The gabled roofs were covered with wood slabs and are now gone except for a portion of the east cabin. Round nails were used in construction. The presence of porcelain insulators indicates that the cabins were serviced by electricity. The mineral plat depicts these structures as bunkhouses. The cabins have been subsequently used for informal camping and recreational purposes.
