Prototype History

Located at milepost 195.6, the mill at Kennecott was the end of the line for the Copper River & Northwestern.  Kennecott was the primary source of traffic on the line, receiving supplies, shipping ore and concentrate, and having regular passenger service for employees coming and going.

The complex was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986, and the National Park Service took ownership of the mill itself and many of the associated industrial structures.  Many of the other buildings and surrounding property are privately owned.
