The mining town of Kennicott, perched on the side of Bonanza Ridge above the wide and rocky Kennicott Glacier, housed the mine offices, homes, a hospital, school and a movie theater. Today, the 14-story Kennecott Mine mill and concentrator building towers over the narrow gravel road through “town,” which includes historic structures like the restored Recreation Hall, the North Sacking shed, the General Manager’ Office, and six other buildings.

The mill is the main attraction at the end of the Edgerton Highway / McCarthy Road.
