  • Huckleberry Mountain Fire Lookout

     

     
     

    Read All About It:

    Located near the summit of Huckleberry Mountain, the Huckleberry Mountain Lookout is the only remaining fire detection building in the northern portion of the Teton National Forest. The Lookout, constructed in 1938, is representative of the early fire protection methods and policies of the United State Forest Service, and is a significant example of rustic design employed by the Forest Service and built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the first half of the twentieth century.

    The Lookout was used for fire detection for forest fires during the summer and fall months and was first manned in 1939. The development of new fire policies, new methods of fire detection, such as the reporting done by public and private aircraft, and the use of modern radio repeater stations all contributed to the decline of fire lookouts. After the 1957 summer season, the Huckleberry Lookout was abandoned for regular lookout service.

  • Rosencrans Cabin Historic District

     

     
     

    Read All About It:

    The Rosencrans Cabin Historic District is a three acre plot of ground in the Bridger-Teton National Forest east of Moran Junction. The district contains five log structures and the grave of forest ranger Rudolf ''Rosie'' Rosencrans. From this location Rosencrans rode horseback through Two Ocean Pass, the Upper Yellowstone and Thorofare country, and other areas of the forest which he administered in the early 1900s. Rosencrans built the first ranger station in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in 1915. The district is significant for its association with Rosencrans, who as one of the first rangers in the Forest, played an administrative role in the early history of the U.S. Forest Service.
