Buildings And Structures

Buildings and structures is a landscape characteristic that contributes to the historic integrity of Rim Village. Today, five primary buildings remain from the historic period and include Crater Lake Lodge, the Kiser Studio, the Community House, the Sinnott Memorial, and the Plaza comfort station. Three of the five primary buildings—the Crater Lake Lodge, the Kiser Studio, and the Community House—were all constructed prior to 1927. The Sinnott Memorial (1938) and the Plaza comfort station (1937) were developed under the supervision of NPS designers and represent outstanding examples of the Rustic style at Rim Village. All five primary buildings are still extant and are described below. Secondary buildings, constructed during the historic period, include comfort stations # 1,2, 3, and 4; and 22 housekeeping units, also known as the Coldwater Cabins, located on the south side of the Cafeteria Building; the majority of secondary structures have been removed. The remaining secondary structures are described after primary buildings.

The historic integrity of the remaining buildings at Rim Village is determined by character defining features. Character defining features include building setbacks, arrangement and spacing of buildings, scale and building height, roof and siding materials, window types, and architectural styles. Each building is analyzed below in the light of these character defining features, which in the case of Rim Village, convey the National Park Service Rustic architectural style, despite alterations made to the buildings after the historic period.
