Now this historical building can be rented for overnight use. Park at the dispersed sites across the road from the Guard Station and meet your site lead in front of the building. Your project will be cleaning up trash in the area, trimming back brush, and weeding around the station. Gloves, trash bags, and brush cutters will be provided.
