Richard Proenneke Site
Lake Clark NPP, Alaska
The most notable feature at the Richard L. Proenneke Site is the cabin Proenneke built by hand from 1966 to 1967 and lived
in between 1968 and 1998. The cabin is constructed of debarked, round spruce logs that are carefully saddle notched at the
corners. The building is 120 square feet in size (10’x12’) with a foundation several inches deep. A stone fireplace rises from
the south wall and a hand crafted Dutch door with intricate wooden joints is located on the north wall.
