Summary

Significance: Max Adolphus "Ed" Biederman ran the mail by dogsled from Circle to Eagle for over twenty years. The buildings at this site, which date from about 1916, were used by Biederman as a fish camp in the summer, where he boarded dogs and caught fish for dog food. In the winter he used the camp as an overnight stop on his mail route. / ...In the winter, Biederman took six days to travel the 160 miles from Circle to Eagle. He used this camp as his overnight stop on the third night out and changed dog teams here. The winter trail broken by Biederman was also used by travelers between Eagle and Circle as well as the miners and trappers who lived along the Yukon.
