Read all about it

Manges Cabin was constructed in 1911 by James Manges and is significant for its association with vernacular architecture. It was originally built as part of Manges Elbo Ranch homestead and was later used as part of a tourist facility which included twelve guest cabins. By 1956 the National Park Service had acquired the property and converted the ranch to employee housing. Around 1973 the Park Service removed many of the structures on the property and converted Manges Cabin to a barn.
