Dog Feed Cache & Sled Storage Building (1920)

The utility building serves as a dog pen, bedding and feeding area, as well as storage and repair space for the dog sleds used to get around the park during winter. Note the dog sled, the carved nameplates for the dogs and the various supplies and tools stacked against and hung on the smooth plank walls.
