Malheur Forest Warehouse Shop (former John Day Compound; Government Hill) – John Day OR

Description

 

 

As noted in the State of Oregon’s Historic Preservation database: “The John Day Compound, Supervisor’s Warehouse is a complex of work buildings, employee residences, and related infrastructure owned an operated by the Malheur National Forest in John Day, Oregon, United States. Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936–1946, it is the headquarters for field operations in the national forest and is typical of projects carried out by the CCC on behalf of the Forest Service. It represents that era’s shift in the Forest Service’s architectural vision toward comprehensive site planning, as well as its policy evolution from custodial superintendence of the national forests toward active natural resource management.” (Wikipedia)

Although a new complex of Malheur National Forest administrative buildings have been constructed to the west of John Day, the complex continues to serve as the warehouse and shop for the National Forest Service.
