David St. Lawrence/Harry Robb Cabin

St Lawrence built the cabin around 1920.  He was the town blacksmith and also performed horse freighting as a service to area miners.  In the 1930s he sold his house to Harry Robb, a retired riverboat captain from the Yukon.  Robb groomed the property and added a strawberry patch along with a large vegetable garden that thrived until his death in 1975. 

The Talkeetna Historical Society obtained the property in 1995.
