Cascade Canyon Barn, Grand Teton National Park




Cascade Canyon Barn, Grand Teton National Park





aka Cascade Canyon Patrol Cabin
Part of men in black shades
Moose, Teton County, Wyoming
Listed: 08/25/1998

Like the cabins at Upper Granite Canyon, Death Canyon, and Moran Bay, the Cascade Canyon Barn/Patrol Cabin is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under criteria A and C, for its association with Grand Teton National Park Administration and Development and its association with NPS Rustic architecture. The barn's period of significance extends from construction in 1935 until the end of the historical period as defined by the National Register (1948), or until the cabin is no longer an important component of the park's backcotmtry administrative system. The interior contributes to the building's significance.

In 1935, CCC crews from either Hot Springs camp #N.P. 3 or Jenny Lake Camp #N.P. 4 (working out of the Phelps Lake Spike Camp) constructed a barn and patrol cabin at Cascade Canyon. According to longtime GRTE employee Doug McClaren, the Cascade Canyon cabin was destroyed by an avalanche ca. 1960 and the barn was converted to a toolcache/ habitation facility. Exterior modifications associated with this conversion appear to be limited to the replacement of wide barn doors with a pedestrian door/side lights/vertical plank infill.

The Death Canyon and Cascade Canyon barns/cabins were constructed from the same building plan, by different CCC crews. Although the buildings are remarkably similar, minor differences sest that builders modified standard plans in accordance with their lumber supply or their personal taste: the gable end battens are mounted on the interior at Death Cabin and on the exterior at Cascade Canyon; windows are trimmed at Death Canyon, and untrimmed at Cascade Canyon; window shutters are constructed of 6" boards at Death Canyon, and random-width (10"-12") boards at Cascade Canyon); fenestration patterns vary.

Last night saw the opening of a special exhibition featuring the works of Auriol Ursula Batten. Auriol is one of South Africa's best botanical artists and has been awarded with many honours world-wide. A special committee was been set up consisting of representatives from the East London Wildflower Society, the Advisory Board of the Ann Bryant, the Friends of Ann Bryant, the Fine Art Society, the East London Museum and some family members of Auriol Batten. The exhibition payed tribute to her for her long and outstanding achievements as a botanical artist, and to her many books, publications as well as aspects of her involvement at the East London Museum, and a great deal more in which she has participated over the years.

Auriol is Chloe and Ella's great -grandmother and my mother-in-law. She has just turned 93.
