description

Summary

Significance: The Graham Cabin is a representative example of recreational camp development on Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park. All recreational camp on the lake evolved form patented homesteads. Homesteaders devised several schemes to develop their properties, including construction of tourist facilities, the sale of individual cabin lots, and platting formal subdivisions. The cabin is located on a lot within Glacier Park Villa Sites subdivision. The cabin is a representative example of recreational camp architecture on Lake McDonald. The cabin's plan and materials are typical of frame cabins constructed after the devastating Half Moon Fire of 1929, when cedar logs were no longer readily available, and milled lumber became the material of choice. The cabin also is an unusual example of cabin construction using prefabricated building materials.
