CARROLL, N.H. (AP) - A team of staff and volunteers from HistoriCorps is restoring the last remaining forest guard cabin in the White Mountain National Forest.

Built in 1923 for $75, the Fabyan Guard Station has slowly sunk into disrepair. The soggy ground has rotted the bottom timbers, and vandals broke windows and the only door. The U.S. Forest Service is spending about $25,000 to rehabilitate the building so it can be used by the public.

HistoriCorps is a national initiative that partners with other groups to preserve historical structures around the country.

It’s old-school work. The crews use the tools and materials of the time to preserve the historical integrity of the building while making it safe again for public use.
