Upper Savage River Cabin No. 30

When we took the Natural History Tour in Denali, one of the stops was Savage Cabin. Built by road crews in 1925-1926, Savage Cabin was actually two cabins built facing each other, connected by a common roof. It was orginally built about a mile soutwest of here and served as a cookhouse for road workers in summer, and as a ranger patrol station in winter.

In 1940, the park separated the two cabins and moved them to a more protected location. The right side was reassembled. The other was eventually used for firewood.
