The Cabin is owned and maintained by The O.H.A. (short for The Old Hutcroo Association), an organization run by former employees of the AMC Hut System. The O.H.A. isn’t supported by the AMC and depends entirely upon the volunteer and financial support of its membership.

With construction (by volunteer OH on land given by Bradford Washburn) starting in 1939 and completed in 1940, the Cabin is a place for current and former croo to relax and enjoy the mountains and each other's company. Your membership dues and cabin fees pay for firewood, taxes, utilities, insurance, repairs, and everything else that goes into keeping the place running, looking good, and available to dues paying members and their friends.

For most people who worked in a hut, that experience taught us a mountain of valuable first lessons, like how to handle people, how to make good decisions, and how to manage and maintain a building entrusted to us. This Cabin deserves the same respect and care.

We’ve successfully operated the Cabin for over 80 years, because users have followed some simple, basic guidelines and pitched in with “must-do” chores. Please continue that Cabin tradition; treat it kindly, keep it clean, and leave it a little better than you found it.
