Long Significance Description:
The Elwha Ranger Station Historic District is comprised of 14 buildings and some small scale and landscape features located on both sides of the Elwha River Road, within OLYM. Organized into a residential (east side of road) and utility/maintenance (west side), the building are a variety of shapes, sizes and functions. It is a cohesive complex of milled wood construction with (primarily) shake-covered gable roofs. The buildings are in good condition [2005] and continue to function and appear much as they did historically after their construction in the 1930s by the USFS. The complex is an example of two property types identified in the MPD form for the Historic Resources of OLYM: Government (USFS) and Architecture (Bungalow/Craftsman). Only one building has been moved from its original location, but remains within the district. Overall, the district retains integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling and association.
