Description 

Storm King Ranger Station is an excellent example of early North Peninsula log construction is one of the oldest remaining structures in Olympic National Park, and possibly the oldest extant building in the Lake Crescent area. Its historical association with Chris Morgenroth, an early homesteader and forest ranger on the peninsula also contribute to its significance. Morgenroth's testimony before Congress helped in the establishment of Olympic National Park. In December 1981, the keeper of the National Register determined the cabin eligible for nomination to the National Register. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
