This picturesque historic building captures a glimpse of a bygone era. Come inside to view a collection of miner's tools, household objects, and other memorabilia from gold rush days to the present.

The oldest functional building in Cooper Landing, the historic post office, is arguably one of the most picturesque rustic structures in the Corridor. The front of the building is decorated with trophy-size moose, Dall sheep, and caribou antlers; artifacts and driftwood; a beer and wine sign from an earlier period; and a bird house. A collection of miner's tools, discarded household objects, mineral specimens and other memorabilia dating from the nineteenth century adorn the front porch under the overhang.

Moved to the Cooper Landing Museum site 600 feet downriver from it's original location, the Cooper Landing post office provides a colorful glimpse of the past and is a favorite place for visitors to stop for photographs.
