Historic District - Employee Residence - 1932
This building is 60 yards (54m) directly opposite the visitor center. Built in 1932 of 2" by 4" wood framing and covered with yellow-tan stucco, this residence is similar in outward appearance to other Wind Cave buildings. The foundation is made of sandstone blocks from the nearby quarry.
Although interior modifications compromise the historic integrity of that part of the house, the historical image of the exterior is virtually unchanged.

Fire is an important factor in protecting the prairie. Historically, fires burned across the prairie every 4 to 7 years. Fires burn the small trees that would otherwise march across the prairie and turn the grasslands to forest.
