  • Ranger's House (Julie Nicoletta)

With its irregular plan (USFS Plan R-4 #1) and cross-gabled roof, this station's house differs from the square and rectangular office and utilitarian structures on the site. A small gableroofed porch shelters the front entrance. A Forest Service ranger and his or her family live in this building throughout the year.
