In the early 1900s the Kennicott Mine produced some of the purest copper ever mined. It continued to produce high quality ore for years before costs outstripped profits and closed virtually over night. Due to the extreme remoteness, much of the equipment was left as is. In the mid 1980s it was turned into a Historic Landmark, it's now a part of the largest National Park in the country, Wrangell-St. Elias.
