In 1935, Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) workers stationed in the Bridger-Teton National Forest constructed three buildings for the Hoback Guard Station: an office/dwelling, a shed, and a garage. There is a fourth building on the site that is not CCC.
The CCC buildings were constructed with an architectural style typical of CCC workmanship, with notched logs and square floor plans.
All of the buildings remain in use by the U.S. Forest Service with minimal physical alterations. The central office/dwelling is available to the public for short-term rentals and overnight stays.
