description

Summary

Significance: Standing when Irving McK. Reed surveyed the Koyukuk mining district for the Territorial Department of Mines in 1937, this cabin is distinguished by careful construction and small size. It is an excellent example of an early miner's residential cabin built on a claim. / This log cabin was constructed by Vincent Knorr in the mid-1930's. Knorr had come to the Koyukuk region in 1927 and by 1938 owned eight claims on Mascot Creek. The careful construction, small size, and excellent condition of this cabin make it a particularly fine example of an early miner's residential cabin built on his claim.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-5
