Short Physical Description:
One story, rectangular plan, gable roof with asphalt roofing, log walls with saddle notching, two-over-two double hung wood sash windows.
Long Physical Description:
The Polebridge Ranger Station Residence is a rectangular, one-story log structure with an asphalt-covered gable roof extended to form a full front porch with log posts. The structure features grooved logs with saddle notching, a concrete foundation, vertical two-over-two double-hung windows, pole rafters and purlins, and louvered vents in the gable ends. The windows are two-over two double hung sash style. It is located near the northeast end of Henshaw Bridge, yet its location among fir and pine and its low, shadowed front elevation successfully underplay the size of the residence. It is a good example of early rustic Park Service architecture and the later, front porch addition enhance the building and its site.
