    In "Beatty's Cabin" written in 1952, author Elliot S. Barker reports seeing, in the late 1800's, the ruins of the original two-room cabin built by George Beatty on "the grassy flat below a rock ledge, between, the main or Falls, fork and the west or Rito del Padre fork of the Pecos River" Beatty was a prospector and miner in the upper Pecos and Gallinas. Barker goes on to describe a trip to the cabin from Harvey's Ranch in 1884 described by Professor L. L. Dyche. "The U. S. Forest Service and State Game Department administrative cabins, located just across the creek also are referred to as Beatty's Cabin.
    Barker describes the cabin ruins as having an earthen roof so obviously this is the Forest Service Administrative cabin.
