The Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Corps (NHBPC), in partnership with the research branch of the US Forest Service, has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement to restore and adaptively reuse the Halfway Ranger Distirct Ranger Swelling site within the Superior National Forest. The site was constructed in 1934 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Volunteers will serve alongside NBHPC crews and technical specialists during the project. Our work at the station this year will involve repairing/replacing and treating and staining logs and fascia boards; scraping and painting structures; and repairing/replacing windows and screens. If time allows, we'll also undertake various other restoration projects throughout Halfway Ranger Stations's 12-acre site. This is an historic gem, so we hope you'll join us once again to give it the tender, loving care it both needs and deserves!
