The Interrorem Guard Station in the Olympic National Forest meets National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) Criterion A for its association with the formative years of the Forest Service. The Interrorem Guard Station is the earliest remaining guard station in the Olympic National Forest and one of the earliest remaining structures in the Pacific Northwest Region. Built in 1907, the Interrorem Guard Station reflects the early effort of the Forest Service to protect and conserve the National Forest resources by distributing personnel to field stations. Rangers constructed permanent administrative buildings and carried out the duties, policies, and regulations of the Forest Service. The Interrorem Guard Station also represents the early forest rangers' important role as the interface between the Forest Service and the public, and represents the long-term presence of the Forest Service in the Duckabush Watershed of the Olympic National Forest.
