Mt. Shasta Ranger Station – Mt. Shasta CA

Description

The Mount Shasta Ranger Station was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935 in classic rustic park style.  The original Ranger Station consists of three buildings – the main office, the timber management office and a guest house – which remain in pristine condition.

The ranger station was the headquarters of the Shasta National Forest (1905) until it was unified with the Trinity National Forest in 1950. It is now responsible for one of the four management units of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, whose headquarters is in Redding.  A sister station is located in McCloud CA.

A relief map of the Shasta-Trinity area hangs in the lobby of the main building. It probably comes from the same Berkeley workshop that produced relief maps of San Francisco and Los Angeles, among others. It is dated 1935.

The CCC was active in the Shasta National Forest and throughout Northern California.
