Summary

Significance: Since the 1980s, the National Park Service has recognized the historical value of rustic furnishings in National Register nominations, theme studies and architectural histories. This report, the first devoted entirely to rustic furniture, is a product of an increased interest in the cultural resources of Mount Rainier National Park. The inventory provides a descriptive record of park holdings and is intended as the first step towards determining methods of preserving and cataloguing the historic furniture collection. The brief historical essay that follows examines the design, construction, and continuing importance of the park's rustic furnishings.
Survey number: HABS WA-220
