Short Significance Description:
The Ash Mountain Historic District was determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places by the CA SHPO at a local level of significance for criteria A and C; period of significance 1924 -1967.
Long Significance Description:
The Buckeye area of the Ash Mountain Historic District was originally developed in 1933 as the site of the CWA “Edison Village” camp, eponymously named after the Southern California Edison Company that leased the land to the NPS. This original camp was made up almost exclusively of tent cabins and there are no extant structures that date back to this period. In 1935, Edison Village became a CCC camp and was renamed Buckeye Camp. The CCC camp remained here from 1935 until at least 1938, and possibly until 1943. Four buildings remain from this era, although they lack sufficient integrity to be considered contributing features. The preponderance of extant features at Buckeye date to the Mission 66 era. Twelve new residences were constructed at Buckeye between 1959 and 1965. It is from this era that Buckeye retains the most integrity. In fact, this area may represent one of the most intact Mission 66 residential developments in California. Although these buildings have undergone some alterations over time, all buildings listed as contributing have been individually assessed and found to retain the majority of their original materials and character-defining features and collectively help to convey the historic character of the historic district.

The Ash Mountain Historic District is significant within Tulare County under Criterion A for its association with National Park Service master planning, New Deal relief programs and Mission 66. It is also significant within Tulare County under Criterion C for its assemblage of buildings exemplifying both park rustic and modern styles of architecture. The period of significance for the Ash Mountain Historic District extends from 1924 to 1967 which encompasses the period from the construction of the oldest extant building at Ash Mountain (Residence #5) to the end of Mission 66 era construction at Ash Mountain in 1967. This latter year signaled the end of development of the administrative area at Ash Mountain. Notably, this period includes the two intensive periods of development that defined the historic character of the area: the New Deal and Mission 66. The Ash Mountain Historic District contains buildings, roads, walkways, steps, retaining walls, and other features constructed between the years of 1924 to 1967, which create a cohesive assemblage portraying NPS master planning that occurred from the 1920s to the 1960s, a period that incorporated developments from the New Deal and the post-World War II Mission 66 era.

Short Physical Description:
These buildings remain true to their original 1959 form: largely rectangular in plan, roughly 23.5 x 67 feet including the attached carport. They maintain their original stucco exterior, concrete foundation, and asphalt-shingled gabled roofs.
Long Physical Description:
Buckeye residences #1401, #1403, #1404, #1405, #1406, #1409, #1412, and #1414 were built as part of the park’s Mission 66 development in 1959 at a cost of $22,245 to $22,552 per unit. They originally served as housing for Park Service employees and they remain in this capacity today. These building are largely rectangular in plan with gabled roofs and they measures roughly 23.5x55 feet and are 23.5x67 feet if you include their attached carport. (These buildings actually jut out and become 2 feet wider and expand to a full 25.5 feet in width for a portion of these buildings) Since these buildings were all built in the same year and are of identical design, they have been inventoried under the same heading. These buildings remain true to their original 1959 form. These buildings maintain their original stucco exterior and concrete foundation. Their gabled roofs originally had asphalt composite shingles and retain this material today. They have storage compartments built into the interior side of their carports. These buildings apparently received new aluminum windows in 1990, but these windows are similar to the original fenestration. These buildings have triangular vents under their gable crown. Their front entries have partially covered concrete stoops.

Buildings #1401 and #1414 are painted tan with aqua trim. Buildings #1403 and #1409 are painted tan with green trim. Building #1404 is painted tan with red trim. Building #1405 is painted white with green trim. Buildings #1406 and #1412 are painted tan with white trim.
