Notes
Survey number HABS AK-20
Significance: The ten year home of hermit prospector Chalie Yale, this cabin site is an accessible, in-park display of early isolated mining. Uses as shelter and way-station tie the site to latter-day mining. Used by Robert Marshall and local stalwarts Ernie Johnson and Vincent Knorr and the communal upkeep as a shelter is a commentary on the wilderness lifestyle in its own right.
