Rustic building programs in Canada's National Parks, 1887-1950: R62-504/1994E-PDF

"The primary resources of Canada's national parks are the natural environments they preserve. Over the years, a valuable additional resource has appeared in the form of buildings erected by government and private interests. The inclination to regard this built heritage as subsidiary to the natural environment has tended to overshadow its significance, in terms of its architectural quality and history, and in terms of its potential capacity to enhance the park experience. ... The purpose of this study is to provide a base for further evaluation and interpretation of this cultural resource. As the title implies, the parameters are defined by building programs in place between 1887 and 1950, and by the rustic architectural theme that prevailed throughout that period"--Introd., p. 11.
