Overview Service & Activities
About Located 30 miles south of Big Timber, Montana, the Main Boulder Ranger Station reflects the early years of the Forest Service and the commitment of the United States to the conservation movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The historic Ranger Station represents perhaps the oldest facility in the Forest Service System and has been painstakingly restored to represent its original character. The Station served as both district headquarters and home to Ranger Harry S. Kaufman and family for almost forty years. The Station, managed by the Gallatin National Forest, is now open to the public as a house museum which depicts the living and working conditions at what was once a remote Ranger Station. Interpretive staff is on hand most summer weekends from July through Labor Day to assist you in your visit of the Station. From the parking area, a short, easy paved path, with grades no steeper than 8% leads up to and around the Station. Along the path, interpretive panels share some of the story that the Station has to tell.
