Note
"Located in the small town of Wallowa in Wallowa County, Oregon, the Wallowa Ranger Station was constructed between 1936 and 1939 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and served as a US Forest Service ranger station until 1981, when headquarters were moved approximately 17 miles south to Enterprise, Oregon. The Wallowa Ranger Station is historically significant for its association with the CCC and also as an intact representative example of CCC-era site planning and construction style. The ranger station is comprised of five contributing buildings, including an office, residence, fire equipment building, garage, and gas house." Source: National Register,Summary, page5.
