A Mining Town Was Built And Left To Decay In The Middle Of Alaska’s Largest National Park

Alaska’s history is a rich and varied one that truly took off during the Gold Rush in the late 1800s. The Kennecott Mine in Alaska is a remnant of a time when the main draw to come to Alaska was to strike it rich. This abandoned mining town was left to decay until the National Park Service began the long project to restore this historical place.
