Tiller in Douglas County, Oregon — The American West (Northwest)
The Tiller Ranger Station
These buildings, constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the period between 1933 – 1942, are excellent examples of the Depression-era, rustic style of U.S. Forest Service structures.
The building in the upper left was the residence for the District Ranger and his family. The original administrative offices were housed in the structure located in the fore-front. The garage located on the right was built to serve the residence.
Because of their distinctive architecture and good condition, all of these structures have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Erected by U.S. Forest Service.

1. Tiller Ranger Station.
In the early 20th century, the forest road networks were not well developed. To facilitate work in National Forests, the Forest Service built district ranger stations at strategic locations within the forest to house full-time employees and provide logistics support to fire patrols and project crews working in remote areas of the forest. After World War II, the Forest Service greatly expanded its road network, allowing employees to get to most forest areas within a few hours. The Tiller Ranger Station has continuously served as a district headquarters since it was established. (Submitted on January 29, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
