Built in 1898, the mess hall, blacksmith's shop, bunkhouse, barn, icehouse and meat cache that still stand at Crow Creek Mine, made up the original mining camp.
Crow Creek Mine was one of the largest producing hydraulic placer gold mines in Southcentral Alaska. During its peak production, historians estimate that 700 ounces of gold were extracted per month. Mining operations came to a standstill during World War II, and local lore claims that more gold remains in the creek than was mined.
Today, Crow Creek Mine is a historic site with preserved buildings, rare mining equipment, gold-panning, and access to nature trails including the Historic Iditarod Trail. The Toohey family has spent over 20 years living and working at Crow Creek Mine with no electricity, telephone or running water, to preserve a significant part of Girdwood's historic past.
Pan for Gold Grab your shovel and pan, stand by for a quick demonstration and try your luck down at the creek for "a little color." Open daily in the summer season from 9 am - 6 pm.
For more information, please contact our Concierge, or visit the Crow Creek Mine website.
