Summary

Significance: The Wind River Administrative Site, involved in a 186-acre land conveyance to Skamania County in March 2002, is representative of the importance of the Federal land management within the Pacific Northwest Region. It contains structures and sites that represent the development of the Forest Service from its beginning, including early Forest Service structures and sites, CCC era structures, an 11-acre Arboretum, and the original Wind River Nursery fields. Forestry practices were developed and refined as a result of experiments at the Administrative Site, practices that have shaped present-day forestry and silviculture operations.
Survey number: HABS WA-232
