Significance: George McGregor, a miner-turned-trapper, built this cabin in 1938. McGregor staked some of the richest ground on Woodchopper Creek in the 1920s. He sold out in the 1930s and turned to trapping. His modest cabin, which he also used as his fish camp, is representative of the small log cabins built by solitary trappers.
