Falsifying Archaeological Studies to UNLAWFULLY Destroy Historical Landmarks

Note: The USFS has not destroyed this cabin "YET". Call them at 208-634-0700 and tell them to leave this 110 year old piece of history in place!

The official USFS archaeological report, required to comply with the National Historical Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA 1966), states the following:

1) [Falsely] The cabin was built in 1969, therefore is not eligible for entry into the National Register of Historical Places and will be destroyed (by USFS rangers).

2) [Falsely] The man who built it, Bill Timm, who died in 1963, reportedly did not build his cabin until 1969!
3) [Correctly] Shows a picture of Bill Timm (as a VERY old man) posing for a newspaper reporter in front of his cabin that he built, dated 1950!!!     According to people who knew Bill Timms, he would have been in his 80s in 1950. If he died in 1963, he would likely have been in his 90s. And, the USFS account that he was able to build the cabin anywhere near 1969 is simply OUTRAGEOUS!



Testimony from witnesses!


Now for the truth, from the man who currently owns the mining claims and is fighting the USFS to preserve this historical cabin:

Jack Walker, current claims owner states he bought the cabin from Bill Timms in the 1940s! Other accounts state the cabin was in much need of repair by 1950 and that other historical figures used the cabin prior to 1950 as a resting point on their way to Marble Creek or other sites.


Jack Walker states he bought it from the builder Bill Timm, and that Bill Timm had told him at the time of sale that it was built around 1901. Other expert witnesses state 1901 is most likely around the time Bill Timms built the cabin, as he was a frequent figure in the town of Roosevelt around the turn of the century.

Note: Below, Bill Timm is listed as an assayer. According to witnesses, Bill Timm was a historical figure in Roosevelt to include an assayer at the assay office, and may have worked at the post office.

Evidence backing up Jack Walker's testimony


The cabin has a much newer metal roof constructed over an existing shingle roof that is very weathered, aged. Jack Walker stated he put the "new" roof on shortly after purchasing the cabin. The metal is very weathered, old as well after more than 50 years exposure to the elements.

The cabin was already very old and in need of much maintenance and repair when Jack bought it in the 1940s. Logs near the bottom of the accompanying tool shed have evidence of being replaced, and the replaced logs are very weathered, which indicates several decades of decay. Especially at almost 8,000 feet elevation where six months of winter dramatically decreases rate of decay.

Materials used, methods of construction suggest that Jack Walker's estimate build date of 1901 is much more realistic than 1969 when the USFS claims the cabin was built by a very dead Bill Timms!

Death Warrant for Bill Timm's Cabin, Signed PNF
PNF CLAIMS BILL TIMMS BUILT CABIN IN 1969, SIX YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH! I WANT TO KNOW WHAT KIND OF HEALTH DIET BILL TIMMS WAS ON! OR REALISTICALLY, WHAT THE PAYETTE NATIONAL FOREST ARCHAEOLOGIST HAS BEEN SMOKING?
AFTER CONCLUSIVELY DISTORTING THE FACTS TO DESTROY AN HISTORIC CABIN, HERE IS THE OFFICIAL DEATH WARRANT! RUBBER STAMPED BY THE IDAHO STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY!






Note: According to Krassel District Ranger Anthony Botello, the USFS directives require the Payette National Forest to "reduce our inventory" of historical structures. I.E., BURN BABY BURN!!!! Apparently through any means necessary, and without regard for the Antiquities Act, National Historical Preservation Act, or the will of the American people!

 The living quarters for the second power plant power plant at Stibnite, it was reportedly constructed at Sugar Creek during 1929-1930, also by George Worthington and Lloyd C. White. It was located on private property. I witnessed Payette National Forest rangers unlawfully enter onto private land and destroy this historical building, already listed on the National Register of Historical Places. I asked the property owner why he did not press charges. He stated that it would not bring the building back, and that he was afraid of further actions the rangers would take against him if he spoke out. Multiple private property owners have lost private property at the hands of USFS rangers. In the case of the bunkhouse on Thunder Mountain, PNF forest rangers reportedly told the property owner it burned because it was "struck by lightning" in November. A witness says he saw a Payette National Forest  ranger that he recognised plus another person riding snowmobiles leaving the site of the burning building on private land.

Get involved! Call the Payette National Forest at 208-634-0700 and tell them NOT to burn Bill Timm's cabin, an important piece of history!!
                                                                                                                                 

ROOSEVELT, IDAHO: BRIEF HISTORY
More information on Roosevelt here: http://www.ruralnetwork.net/~yptimes/page13.html

The ghost town of Roosevelt is a testament that the mountaineers of Thunder Mountain loved Teddy Roosevelt so much they thought their beautiful town should bear his name.
In 1901, Roosevelt and the surrounding communities were a hustling, bustling place of business. More than 10,000 people received mail at the post office located in Roosevelt.

Named after president Theodore Roosevelt(1901-1909), the town that still bears his name is now located in the majestic Frank Church Wilderness, one of the largest wildernesses in the lower 48 states.

It is believed by local residents from surviving nearby communities that the cabin constructed by Bill Timm is the best maintained, intact structure from the time period that pioneers, settlers saw fit to name the beautiful town of Roosevelt after the great preservationist Theodore Roosevelt.

Ironically, it is now the USFS, an agency that is a living legacy committed to preserving lands set aside by President Teddy Roosevelt, that is now falsifying documents and preparing to destroy the only buildings left in a historical town which bears his name.
Not much written history exists about the town of Roosevelt. A few 100+ year old remnants, a cemetery, a handful of dusty dirt roads is about all that is left.

Sadly, eco-terrorists in charge of the Payette National Forest are working hard to selfishly ensure they will be the last people on earth to see Roosevelt, Idaho, or any remains there-of.
I highly doubt Theodore Roosevelt anticipated that the agency that was started in his lifetime, would become the destroyers of life, liberty, property, legacies which they are today.

The USFS PNF is so utterly offended by evidence that human beings had once walked the earth in the places they manage, they go to great lengths to cleanse the earth of all human activity, even that archiving the existence of a great man, president and outdoor enthusiast such as Teddy Roosevelt.
