National Register of Historic Places listing

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993 for its architecture, which includes Pueblo Revival and other styles.

The NRHP listing includes government housing and office space in three contributing buildings, the office, barn/garage, and house, located on 2 acres (0.81 ha).[1][2] They were built by the CCC—Civilian Conservation Corps.

It was deemed significant "for its association with the expansion of Forest Service administration from custodial superintendence to active resource management" as well as for embodying "the use of standard plan architecture developed in the 1930's by Regional Office architects" and representing "a distinctive Forest Service architectural design style and philosophy."[2]:5 It was part of the Depression-Era USDA Forest Service Administrative Complexes in Arizona MPS (Multiple Property Submission) of the National Park Service in 1989.[3]
