Welcome to the Chippewa National Forest Supervisor's Office! This log building was constructed by Civilian Conservation Corps Camp 705 in 1936.
Made from 100-year old native red pine logged from Star Island and Lake 13 area, the 8,500 square foot building is made from 16,000 lineal feet of red pine logs, each 10-16 inches in diameter. The 50-foot high fireplace is made from 265 tons of split glacial boulders.
Step inside and discover the hand-hammered ironwork, maple stair rails, hand-hewn split log stairs and birds-eye maple flooring that make this building so unique.
In 1976, the Chippewa National forest Supervisor's Office was listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.
