HYRUM, Utah (AP) - A guard station built in 1934 in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest in northeastern Utah has been restored and an open house will be held to teach the public about the building.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1FWnrBY ) that the Blacksmith Fork Guard Station was built about 11 miles from Hyrum as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal Program. The station and surrounding grounds will be open to the public Friday.

A National Forest spokeswoman says the guard station area provides a variety of recreational activities, including hiking, biking, horseback riding and off highway vehicle trails. The cabin may be available for public use by the end of the summer and can accommodate five to six people. It also has room for tents adjacent to the building.
