Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 28, 1987):
Originally constructed in 1903, and moved and rebuilt in 1919, the Lodge was the principal foothold of the influential Sierra Club in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is a transitional building in 20th century architecture, with strong European roots in its Tudor Revival design combined, with an interesting use of building materials found in the work of architects of the Bay Area tradition. An outstanding example of the theory that the materials and site should determine the design of the building.

Condition:
There are no threats to the landmark at this time.
