General Manager's Office

-A A +A
1908 and later

Although the main work of the mine went through the mill, other buildings were required to keep the mill running. The general manager's office, just northeast of the mill, is the oldest building on the site. The log structure, 17 feet by 21 feet, is the original portion; two wood-framed additions, and two small concrete ones, complete the structure. The concrete addition on the side of the building contained a safe for money, while the one on the end was used for drawing and plat storage. The interior is finished with beaded boards, vertical and unpainted on the wainscot, and horizontal and painted on the walls and ceiling. Here, too, most of the windows are broken out.
