History: Arrowhead Lodge, both the cabins and the lodge, were constructed during the 1930s. The buildings are log construction and have names such as Wigwam, Ute, Apache, and Tepee. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and serves as a visitor center for people traveling and recreating in theCache la PoudreRiver corridor. The lodge is also known as a viewing spot for bighorn sheep, mostly on the hillsides behind the main buildings.HistoriCorps crews and volunteers will re-roof the Wigwam, Zuni, Hopi and Thunderbird cabins of the Arrowhead Lodge.

  • Remove deteriorated rolled asphalt roofing on all gables;
  • Repair deteriorated roof-decking, as needed;

Although previous construction experience is not required, it is encouraged. Tools, safety equipment, and delicious meals will be provided by HistoriCorps but transportation to and from the project is the responsibility of the participant.
