Another example of rustic architecture, Henness Ridge is a three-story structure built in 1934 by the CCC. The first and second floors are garage and living quarters respectively. The third floor cab is 13’ x 13’ with a catwalk. Now reserved for emergency use, the Yosemite National Park site has been restored.
