When Alden Roseborough accepted the Mail Carrier's position in 1895, a long and rugged road awaited. The route - 100 miles round trip - took him from Mammoth Hot Springs through remote northern Yellowstone National Park to Cooke City, an isolated mining town in the Absaroka Mountains. He carried precious threads of communication between Cooke City and the outside world.To facilitate regular journeys, Mr. Roseborough leased two cabins along the route. He also erected this cabin and became its first occupant. The dwelling served as an employee residence for more than a century. Rural DeliverySnow, Rain or ShineMiners' Road travelers knew all too well how rough the track was to Cooke City and how deeply the snow drifted for months at a time. As the mail carrier, Mr. Roseborough was likely more familiar with conditions than most. To use his services, postal patrons paid $.02 for a one-ounce letter (above right).More than a century after Mr. Roseborough carried mail, the Miners' Road remained visible (photo above). Today's road covers much of the historic route.
