Vote Your Park!

Did you know that Longmire at Mount Rainier National Park has the largest collection of early 20th century buildings in the "Rustic Style" of architecture in the National Park System? From the Nisqually Entrance Arch to the Longmire Administration Building, the style continues to be appreciated for its use of materials found in nature and for its harmony with the surrounding landscape.

Other good example of NPS Rustic design at Longmire are the residential cabin houses built in the 1920s and 1930s, some with help by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Naturally, time has put wear and tear to many of the houses, and we are hoping to rehabilitate one to its former state for use as housing for our invaluable Search and Rescue volunteers.

Can you lend us a hand? #VoteYourPark until July 5.
