Short Significance Description:
Bar B C Dude Ranch Garage/Work Cabin is a contributing feature of Bar B C Dude Ranch HD, locally significant under NR Criterion A for its association with dude ranch development, and under Criterion B for its association with author, Struthers Burt. The period of significance is 1912 – 1937.
Long Significance Description:
The Cultural Landscape Inventory included Criterion C as this property embodies the distinctive architectural and organizational characteristics of a western dude ranch that was built and operated during the Golden Age of this industry. The CLI also amended the period of significance to 1912 – 1941.

Draft 1994 Historic Structure Report included a historical overview, existing condition assessments, repair cost estimates, cultural landscape study, and archeological survey for this 34-acre building site. Richard Cronenberger served as project manager. Report was never published.

Information regarding the number of contributing resources and the boundary of this property was taken from the "Boundary Increase" form prepared by Domigan in 1993. Only 37 resources have actually been listed-several of these have been removed.

The district buildings, constructed in 1912, all are built in a style referred to as dude ranch vernacular characterized by log construction. The historic district is significant because as a dude ranch it helped define and set the standards for the local Jackson Hole industry. It is also important because it was built and operated by Struthers Burt, a local author and industry leader of dude ranching. Along with Horace Carncross, Burt operated the ranch as a guest facility until Burt's and later Carncross' retirement. It was then operated by the Corse family until after World War II when the ranch buildings became summer rental cabins.
