Clarkia Ranger Station, Cottage No. 2, West of Highway 3, .5 mile north of Clarkia, Clarkia, Shoshone County, ID

description

Summary

Significance: The cottage is part of the Clarkia Ranger Station which is considered eligible to the National Register of Historic Places under criterion a, due to its association with the Forest Service a leading conservation agency in the region. The layout of the station and design of the buildings is typical of district headquarters, which were newly established during the late 1930s and early 1940s. Most of the major buildings were designed according to a common architectural theme, which is seen at other similar properties on different forests throughout the region. The historical buildings present may be considered eligible under National Register criterion c, since they are representative of a standard style of building construction used at semi-rural properties during the 1940s period. The use of wood frame buildings with finishing materials which give a rustic appearance, is typical of this period.
