The Steele Creek Roadhouse is a historic roadhouse, post office, and trading post in east-central Alaska. It is located on the south side of the Fortymile River, at the mouth of Steele Creek, and is accessible via a hiking trail from mile 105 of the Taylor Highway, or by river access. It is a two-story log structure, 50 feet (15 m) wide and 25 feet (7.6 m) deep. Its first story was built c. 1898 by a man named Anderson, with the second story added in about 1910. It was on the main route between Eagle and Chicken between 1907 and 1951, serving travelers and local residents, until the Taylor Highway bypassed it. It underwent restoration in 2011.
