Significance: Woodchopper Roadhouse, built ca. 1910, is the largest and oldest log structure on the Yukon between Eagle and Circle. Located halfway between the two towns, the roadhouse housed winter travelers and served as a wood stop for steamboats in the summer. In addition, the roadhouse functioned as post office and town center for the mining community on Woodchopper Creek from the early 20th century until the 1930s.
