History & History Related Items

Minto history:

The local Minto band of the Tanana Athabascan tribe travelled through this area to trade furs for necessary goods. Once steamboats began to come up the river, the stopping place known as Old Minto became more permanent. Members of the group built log cabins while other, more seasonal residents, lived in tents. In 1969, after a great deal of repeated flooding, the community re-located 40 miles north of the old site. By 1971, both new housing and a new school were built.
