Hamilton Lions celebrate club's role in preserving historic Alta Cabin

The Alta Cabin has special meaning for the Hamilton Lions Club. The members are always looking for a way to give back to and be involved in their community. The Alta Cabin-Ranger Station was built in 1899 by Than Wilkerson and Henry Tuttle to serve as their headquarters to administer part of the General Land Office Bitterroot Reserve. Wilkerson and Tuttle had the responsibility of patrolling thousands of acres of what is now the West Fork Ranger District.

Recognizing the significance of Alta Ranger Station in the history of the National Forest system, the Hamilton Lions Club purchased the site from Pete Bennett's daughter in 1941 and donated it to the Forest Service. Although documentation is a bit vague, the cabin is probably the oldest surviving building associated with federal forest management. In December 1974, Alta Cabin was officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places.                              (Ravalli Republic article)
