Austin Pass Warming Hut, Washington Highway 542, Glacier, Whatcom County, WA



Significance: The Austin Pass Warming Hut is associated with Federal efforts to promote the welfare of the American people, as a result of its construction by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Constructed in 1940, it was the last major project of Washington Junior Company 2915, based at Camp F-12 near Glacier. The Warming Hut is also an excellent example of the Pacific Northwest Region rustic architectural style. Although not an administrative site, the Warming Hut shares many of the attributes of Depression-era administrative site design identified by Gail Throop (1983: 125-127): irregular plan, roof and porch projections, intersecting gables, dormers, multi-paned windows and variations in exterior texture.
