About this item
Timberline is a ski lodge on the slopes of Mt. Hood, Oregon, only 65 miles from Portland. Between 1936 and 1938 and in the middle of the Great Depression, it was hand built and furnished through the Works Progress Administration. When Pres. Franklin Roosevelt came to Oregon in 1937 to dedicate the lodge, its significance as a New Deal success was confirmed. Timberline stands today as an icon of New Deal art and Cascadian architecture. Its rustic style is complemented by locally sourced and handmade wood furniture, wrought iron furnishings, and textiles. Designated as a National Historic Landmark, the lodge, a living museum, is one of Oregon’s most visited sites. It is managed for the public by the US Forest Service and operated as a ski area, hotel, and tourist attraction by R.L.K. and Company.
