Rich Goldmining Past
In the early 1900s, in the midst of an Alaskan Gold Rush, Kantishna Valley was home to as many as 10,000 gold miners looking to strike it big. As a remote location with numerous reports of major gold findings, Kantishna fit the bill as a great location for miners. Many of the original buildings from the gold rush still stand, including the original recorders cabin, where prospectors registered their findings, and the original Kantishna Roadhouse, which served as a post office and community center in the early 1900s. During your time at Kantishna, see these historic buildings up close to catch a glimpse of Alaska’s goldmining past. These rustic structures are reminders of what once stood in this valley, a small town of prospectors seeking out their next big strike.
