McCarthy / Kennicott City Sightseeing Tours
Explore the once bustling mining operation town and buildings of Kennecott
City Sightseeing Tours
The wilderness town of Kennecott — once home to a bustling mining operation — was suddenly abandoned in 1938 when the Kennecott Copper Corporation ceased operations. Now you can tour the ghost town with an expert: St. Elias Alpine Guides was granted special permission as the only concessionaire with the National Park Service to take travelers not only around the town, but also inside the buildings.
