McCarthy Homestead - one of the 7 homesteads that are registered National Historic Landmarks at Big Prairie - North Fork - Glacier National Park.
I guess practicalities of heating ruled - that window isn't much of a picture window for the great view (see previous photo in my stream).
"The cabin is the only representative of pre-1910 homesteading activity on the west side of the Continental Divide in Glacier. During the 1930s a Civilian Conservation Corps camp was built nearby. At about the same time, the cabin, and others nearby, transitioned from homesteading inholdings to summer cabins for their owners. In the 1950s some of the CCC structures were relocated to the vicinity of the cabin. The National Park Service purchased the property in 1970.
