Hog Park Guard Station
National Register 9/25/2003, 5JA.561
Constructed in 1910, Hog Park Guard Station is the oldest standing guard station in Routt National Forest. The simple log cabin is a rare example of a time when the Forest Service District Rangers were using common standards to construct buildings of local materials with local labor. The location of the buildings also demonstrates the shift in philosophy from one of resource management to one of resource conservation. (1993 photograph.)
Colorado State Forest Building Complex
Near State Highway 14, Gould vicinity
National Register 1/17/17, 5JA.2571
The Colorado State Forest Building Complex represents good examples Pioneer Log and Rustic-style architecture, the style represented on the main house and the Civil Conservation Corps (CCC) constructed office/garage. Both the Pioneer Log and the Rustic styles incorporate the readily available and inexpensive construction material from the nearby forests. The complex is also important for its association with President’s Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal legislation to aid the United States during the Great Depression. This legislation included creating numerous relief programs, policies, and agencies to provide employment, conserve natural resources, and assist in public works construction, such as projects completed by the CCC. The CCC in Colorado constructed the large Rustic-style log office/garage at the property. Additionally the property is significant in the area of military history as a work site for German and Austrian prisoners of war during the last three years, 1942 – 1945, of World War II and for the potential to yield important information to history.

Lake Agnes Cabin
2.5 miles from Colo. Hwy. 14, near Cameron Pass
Colorado State Forest, Gould vicinity
National Register 9/26/2007, 5JA.1716
The 1925 cabin is a good local example of Rustic style architecture, a form characterized by its natural setting and its use of native materials, often log and stone. Designed to blend in with the natural environment, these buildings usually served as vacation homes, hunting lodges, dude ranches, or tourist-related facilities in national and state parks. The Lake Agnes Cabin reflects the design characteristics with its log walls, rubble foundation, simple form, and gently pitched roof. (2005 photograph.) More information (PDF, 424 kb).
