Eagle Guard Station A.W.S.
When the observers were not at the summer station up on Bogachiel Peak, they were placed in the valley below at the Eagle Ranger Station, also known as the Eagle Guard Station is presently known as the Sol Duc Ranger Station. The building was built in 1936 by the U.S. Forest Service. At that time, the area was in Olympic National Forest. Today, the Ranger Station is in the National Park. The one and a half story wood frame house is a simple gabled structure with an asymmetrically-placed porch framed in timbers. The garage was also built in 1936. In 1940, the generator house was built by the CCC, a one-story frame structure that is capped with a hipped roof and topped by a cupola. It is about 50 feet to the east of the residence. The Eagle Ranger Station was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 13, 2007. This information is from a Wiki, subject to whoever wrote it, I will get an image of the cupola structure next time I am in the area, sounds interesting.
