—Did You Know? —

This log cabin is built of native Idaho woods, and each room inside is paneled is a different species.
Originally known as Chateau de Bois. this cabin was erected in 1940 to house the state forester. Built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC), it is constructed entirely of native woods donated by various Idaho mills. The exterior walls are Englemann spruce logs, assembled without the use of nails. The building was completed in May 1940 in honor of Idaho's 50th anniversary of statehood.
The log cabin style represents our western pioneer tradition, and the use of native materials symbolizes the importance of Idaho's vast timber resources.
