Long Physical Description:
The Service Station (Building No. 21) was built under NPS Contract in 1932 according to Drawing LV-3006. This one-room, one-story building is now used for storage. The plans were drawn by "M.S.S.," presumably Merel S. Sager, who may have designed the structure. No designer was listed. The Service Station was moved twice. The first move was from the center of the first utility area to the southern edge where snow removal was easier. The last move, which occurred in 1941, was to its present location in the redesigned utility area.

The Service Station is a frame structure on a concrete foundation. The building is rectangular in plan and measures approximately 12 by 18 feet. The steeply pitched (12/12) gable roof, designed so heavy snow loads will slide off, extends 12 feet from the front wall to form a porte cochere, which sheltered the gas pump, since removed. There is lap siding with mitered corners (metal plates cover corners) on the exterior except at the gable ends where the siding is board and batten. The siding is painted brown and trim is white. The roof is covered with wood shakes, painted green. The interior consists of one room with unfinished walls and ceiling and a wood floor.
