HistoryThe present center was built in the early 1930s by the U.S. Forest Service after closing several ranger stations in Pike National Forest between the community of Buffalo Creek and Lake Wellington. In 1968, this station and one at Bailey in Park County were consolidated into the South Platte District and located in Lakewood, Colorado. The Work Center at Buffalo Creek community is manned at the present time by timber crews, fire crews, and recreation crews.
