Copper Center

Copper Center is one of the oldest white communities in Alaska’s Interior. It was founded as an Agricultural Experiment Station in the late 1800s.

Andrew Holman is said to have been its first resident. He established a temporary roadhouse near the site in 1898 to provide shelter for prospectors traveling to the Klondike Gold Rush over the Valdez Eagle Trail.
