In the fall of 2012, a fire resulted in the total loss of this historic structure that was originally built in 1926 to house Forest Service Rangers. Lately, the cabin was available for rental and was popular with hikers, cross-country skiers, snowshoers and huckleberry pickers.
The Forest Service is committed to moving the Willard Tool House, a historic structure built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1940, to the site. The project budget is $75,000, including the structure relocation, foundation construction and finish carpentry. To date, 1/3 of the budget has been secured. Mt. Adams Institute is helping to raise additional funds.
