The Photography Hut was built in 1965 for the purpose of housing the motor and mechanicals for the ski lift as seen in these screen captures from the ski video:
When the ski program ended in the late 60’s, the equipment was removed and the building was re-purposed. Many of the large electrical switches remained; the reason for them was a mystery until the history was learned. A porch was added in the 70’s.
Here are some photos of the building during its use as the Photography Hut:
