Priest River Experimental Forest – Priest River ID

Description

Originally the Priest River Experimental Station, the Priest River Experimental Forest now refers to both a stretch of forest near Priest River Idaho and the research buildings and other facilities located there. It has been a site for forestry research since 1911. During the 1930s, the CCC replaced nearly all the station’s original buildings, most of which are still standing. The CCC-constructed facilities include underground telephone and power systems, sewage system, gas house, lodge, residence #3, laboratory/office building, and residence #4.
