WP:OTRS has received, at Ticket:2010090110005878, a number of suggestions for the improvement of the article by a historian who has researched this place. I am reproducing them below.  Sandstein  18:46, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

"The log building's architect was Pierce Horrocks, Seattle architect and Rolling Bay (Bainbridge Island) resident.

The cabin was built by federal employees of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1935 and a concrete floor was added in 1937.

The cabin was named by Bainbridge Island's Boy Scout troop 497 for US Army Corps of Engineers Major M. J. Hopkins, the founder of Island Scouting. Hopkins was a community leader and member of the survey team that sited Grand Coulee Dam. (...)

A page one story, Monday, August 30, 2010 by Tristan Baurick in the Kitsap SUN newspaper, "Historic Log Cabin Rises Back From The Dead" reported the Sat., Aug. 28 re-opening. Baurick's story has two historical errors:

(1.) during WW II the cabin had been used as a recreation hall (not barrack as reported) by the US Army's 202nd coast artillery unit whose headquarters, field kitchen, barracks and bath house were nearby. And

(2.) Soviet merchant mariners used the cabin during WW II (not after WW II) during times at which their ships were being repaired at the Navy's Winslow Shipyard.

The web site:, click on "Parks & Facilities", then click on "Parks", then click on "Camp Yeomalt" continues to be a good source of history, remarkable historic preservation efforts (horse logging, cabin lifting and log repair, song lyrics and recording, etc.)."
