The major significance of this structure is that it is a typical cabin, much like ones found
throughout the hills of Interior Alaska. It is small, only about 10'x10'-easy to build and easy to
move. Since building materials were scarce during the early 1900s, people often moved
buildings from camp to camp. Walking among the hills around Fairbanks you often see the
depressions where buildings used to be, but when the claim ran out, the people moved--lock,
stock, and cabin.
