Description 

This structure (1929) took its shape from the surrounding landscape and is subtly connected to its natural environment by natural feeling forms in its style and the native materials used to construct it. The texture of the stonework and its rough courses mimicking the local geology are its only "ornament", again using its surrounding environment to develop its appearance and form. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, May 28, 1987
