In loving memory of Dean H. Christopherson

In loving memory of
Dean H. Christopherson
1916-1992
Made possible by a generous
contribution from
Mrs. Elaine G. Christopherson
in memory of her husband

The cabin is similar to the cabin at Rohn
the eighth checkpoint on the Iditarod
Trail Sled Dog Race. Nestled along the
north side of the Alaska Range at the
confluence of the Tatina and the South
Fork of the Kuskokwim Rivers. The
original Rohn cabin was built in 1910 as a
roadhouse which served the interior
gold mining communities of Iditarod,
Flat, Ophir, and others. Earthquakes and
fires destroyed the original cabin. The
present cabin was built in 1929. The cabin
and nearby airstrip have been
maintained and used as an emergency
shelter and landing strip as well as
serving as a checkpoint during the
Iditarod Race.
