10 Acres With An Off Grid Cabin in McCarthy Alaska.
February 17, 2020
McCarthy Alaska has risen from the ghost-town ruins of the Wrangell Mountains copper mining boom, and is undeniably Alaskan.
60 miles down a gravel road laid over rail ties, tucked among mountains and glaciers, dominated by outhouses over septic tanks. There’s no government, garbage collection or electric utility.

Copper was discovered between the Kennicott Glacier and McCarthy Creek in 1900, after which Kennicott Mine, Kennecott Mining Company, and company town of Kennecott were created. Due to a clerical error, the corporation and town used the spelling of Kennecott instead of Kennicott, named for Kennicott Glacier in the valley below the town. The glacier was named after Robert Kennicott, a naturalist who explored in Alaska in the mid-1800s.
10 acres of off grid living at it’s best in McCarthy Alaska! Nice Summer cabin in the Wrangell National Park close to Kennicott Mine. MUST make an appointment to see.
