The garage, small apartment, and seven bedrooms are currently usable, with the remaining area being damaged by the fire, limiting full use of the facility. Estimates for repairs/refurbishment have not been compiled and will be buyer responsibility. Fire damage was due to a stack fire in 2009, with the only currently usable area being the bunk-room area consisting of 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, small two bedroom apartment adjacent to the main entry, and the garage - estimated at a total of 3185 sq ft. The other areas are unusable and not considered rentable and are not considered to provide any value contribution to the site.

History of McGrath, Alaska: The original town of McGrath, Alaska sits across the Kuskokwim River from its present location. Old town McGrath was established as a trading post in 1904, named after a local United States Marshal, Peter McGrath. Shortly after, gold was discovered in the area. After 1925, gold mining significantly declined along with traffic through the town. In 1933, a major flood caused a number of residents to move across the river to the present location. By 1940, an airport and school were opened. McGrath continued on its path to becoming a regional hub for the area that it is today.
