Cantwell, on the Parks Highway, began as an Alaska Railroad flag stop and continues as a work station for the railroad. The village was named for the Cantwell River, the original name of the Nenana River, named by Lt. Allen in 1885 for Lt. John C. Cantwell of the Revenue-Cutter Service, Kobuk River area explorer.
