Mount Rainier National Park
An icon of the Pacific Northwest, Mount Rainier National Park calls to climbers and hiking enthusiasts from around the world. In addition to striking mountain vistas, visitors encounter the most complete example of early Park Service master planning and one of the most extensive collections of Rustic style architecture within the charming Longmire Historic District.
With over two million visitors a year experiencing Mount Rainier’s trails, search and rescue teams are called into action at a moment’s notice to help visitors.
A $183,000 grant from Partners in Preservation: National Parks will help rehabilitate an original building in the Longmire Historic District, one of the most extensive collections of National Park Service Rustic style architecture in the country, to provide housing for volunteer search and rescue staff who are critical to park emergency operations.
