The chimney towers through the center of the main longe of the "head house" filled with original furniture upholstered in hand-woven fabric.
"Timberline Lodge brought people together when it was built in the 1930s, and it still does so today. Great Lodges of the West includes Timberline’s rich history illustrated with stunning photography and historic photos and drawings. The value of such coverage of one of Oregon’s National Historic Landmarks can only help its continued good health." --- Linny Adamson, Curator, Timberline Lodge, Mount Hood, Oregon
While the Great Depression was taking its toll on much of the nation, the New Deal administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt planned to put hundreds of men and women to work here on the slopes of Mount Hood.
