Building No. 21

-A A +A

An example of the Rustic buildings designed by Park Service architects, Building No. 21 features a large shed dormer and a stone chimney. The first-floor walls are built of round logs, laid horizontally, while the second floor is clad with vertical rounded planks; the building has a concrete foundation. Built as a dormitory for rangers, it now serves as the administrative office, and the interior has been substantially altered.
