To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to demonstrate the love of Christ Jesus to everyone we encounter.
“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up … Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” — Deuteronomy 6:6-7 & 9
“This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” — 1 Corinthians 4:1–2
Old Town Copper Center Inn and Restaurant (formerly Copper Center Lodge) is a family owned and operated business since 1948. The original historic lodge burned down in May of 2012 leaving all of the historic outbuildings still intact. Tom and Kim Huddleston reinvented the business by opening their new restaurant, Nummy's, in the old Club 96 building that is recently remodeled. They have added a menu of beer and wine to the great menu they already had.
The new business currently has 4 new rooms offered to travelers who wish to enjoy the majestic surroundings of the Wrangell Mountains and famous Copper and Klutina rivers located in their back yard. Many activities are enjoyed around Old Town Copper Center such as skiing, hiking (nearby), fishing, hunting, sightseeing, birding and much more. Old Town Auto and the George Ashby Museum are also a part of Old Town Copper Center.
For more history and fun facts such as the long-held belief that ghosts haunted the lodge. See the Alaska Magazine’s May 2019 article, “The Many Lives of The Old Town Copper Center Inn,” on the Local History Page.
