The Butte Falls Ranger Station compound, including the Ranger?s House and Garage, was built by crews of Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees during the New Deal years (1933-1941) of the Great Depression. These CCC-built administrative buildings exemplify the Pacific Northwest?s Forest Service ?Cascadian/rustic? style of architecture. The Butte Falls Ranger?s House has an interior that is especially notable for its comparatively elaborate ?rustic?-wood detailing. Due to these qualities, in 1984 the house and all of the other CCC-built Butte Falls Ranger Station compound buildings were formally determined eligible to and subsequently listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
Should the purchaser have no interest in historic preservation and/or intends to raze the buildings, the purchaser is encouraged to consider advertising the Ranger?s Residence for low-cost sale to a new owner who would move the building to a different site with the intention of restoration and preservation, perhaps with tax benefits.
Although the Forest Service encourages activities which maintain the historic elements of this property, there are no federally mandated requirements to do so.
