Summary

Significance: Building 103 is one of the earliest Rush Creek worker cottages. Designed by the Riverside, California architect, W.C. Tanner, it combines Craftsman Bungalow and English Cottage styles. The Rush Creek System is significant for its position in the development of hydroelectric generation on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada, and for innovations in dam construction and powerhouse planning.
