United States Forest Service Building Ogden UT

The US Forest Service Structure is a historic building held by the US federal government in Ogden, Utah. It was built between 1933 and 1934 and is recognized as a Historic Federal Building. It is located at 507 25th Street. The US Forest Service Intermountain Region, the Experimental Station, and the Supply Depot all needed offices, and it was up to them to supply them.

The United States Forest Service chose Ogden as the site for its district headquarters in 1908. Because it offered better railroad rates, more local amenities, and a stronger commercial community, Ogden was chosen over Salt Lake City. The headquarters building's design and construction did not commence until the 1930s. The structure, which stands on the southeast corner of 25th Street and Adams Avenue, was one of the nation's first to be funded by the Works Progress Administration (WPA).

The project was started in 1932 by the Ogden architectural firm Hodgson & McClenahan, and building began in 1933. Construction was completed in 1934 by Murch Brothers Construction of St. Louis, Missouri. One of the earliest structures constructed under the Works Progress Administration was the Forest Service Building (WPA). It was built in response to the government's goal of spurring economic growth during the Great Depression. It was the first federal building in Ogden, and it cleared the way for what is now the city's largest employer.

The United States Forest Service Building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 as part of the Ogden Art Deco Buildings Thematic Resources Nomination, which honors the town's notable Art Deco architecture. The structure was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006. The US Forest Service still uses the building to house people from its Ogden Ranger District, Office of General Counsel, and Intermountain Research Station in Utah.

The structure is an excellent example of the Art Deco architectural style. Detailed decorative surfaces, such as stepped shapes and geometric details, are used in this style. It is one of three buildings in Ogden that follow this style, all of which are part of the "Ogden Art Deco Buildings" National Register Thematic Nomination. To show that this was important, the State of Utah put a historical marker in the main lobby.

The offices of the United States Forest Service are still active today. In the same building, the Internal Revenue Service and the USDA Office of General Counsel have offices. The structure has become a well-known landmark as a result of its unusual design. The structure has seen few changes and has been meticulously maintained over the years.
