Historic Resource Study, Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, 1984
X. Construction of Government Buildings and Landscaping in Crater Lake National Park
2. Ranger Dormitory, Superintendent’s Residence, Naturalist’s Residence, and three Employee Residences
Although not seen by as many visitors as the rim area planting, the landscape work around the buildings at Government headquarters was a great improvement. Work done by the CCC included landscaping the new Ranger Dormitory on three sides, complete landscaping of the new Superintendent’s Residence, including the rear of the building, and extending plantings on either side of the drive down to the turnaround. The Naturalist’s Residence was completely landscaped on all sides. Areas around the three new employee residences were also planted during the summer of 1933. Because of the rocky, sandy nature of the soil at the residences, the soil had to be prepared in the same way as was done at the rim, involving moving in good soil and mixing it with peat to retain moisture.
