- Botten Cabin
- The Botten Cabin, also known as the Wilder Patrol Cabin, was built in 1929 in the Elwha River valley for Henry H. Botten.The hunting cabin is located in the back country of what in 1938 became Olympic National Park in the U.S. state of Washington. The remote backcountry cabin was built by local settler Grant Humes for Botten, who used it until his death in 1953. Botten's widow continued to apply for special use permits into the 1960s. More recently, the National Park Service has used the cabin as a backcountry patrol cabin. The cabin is one of only two former private hunting camps left in Olympic National Park. (read more...)
