Summary

Significance: Timberline Lodge was the largest recreational project undertaken by the Works Progress Administration in Oregon during the 1930s. The lodge's architectural and artistic significance lies in its integration of exterior, interior and landscape design motifs that express regional cultural traditions. Architects on the project called this aesthetic "Cascadian" to recall the mountain environment of the Cascade range. The lodge has played a key role in Oregon's recreational history. It represents an historical example of a successful cooperative effort between government agencies, private companies and non-profit organizations to provide a government-owned recreational facility for public enjoyment.
