We had an hour or so to spare during our stopover in Delta Junction. We had read about the roadhouse so we called by to take a look and are so glad we did. It is an original roadhouse from the stagecoach days (albeit moved a couple of times) and gives an excellent view of travelling life in days gone... More

This is a free attraction which is well worth a visit, if it is on your route (not special enough for a specific trip out as it is so far off the beaten track). Good point to break your journey North (or South for that matter) between Tok and Fairbanks.

I spent a couple of hours happily immersed in the recent past in the log cabin that has been transported to its present position in Delta Junction. The personal letters and artefacts really brought home to me the life of the pioneers in Alaska in a way that isn't possible just by reading about them. The place was set out... More

Great place to stop and get a feel for what it was like years ago in Alaska. Nice photos and displays that represent this history of the area.

After visiting the friendly staff at the Visitor's centre walk across the road to visit this historic cabin, well worth it. There is a farmers market here on a Saturday morning.

A good museum showcasing the roadhouse system and lifestyle of the late 1880's-early 1900's. It is free!

We were lucky enough to be there when no one else was and the gentleman gave us our own private tour. He was very knowledgeable about the Sullivans and history of Alaska. Definitely worth the stop and check out the crystallized egg tin - who knew they had powdered eggs back in the 1800's!

This authentic roadhouse had a wonderful gentleman who was full of stories and history. We peppered him with questions and spent a most enjoyable hour learning about the roadhouse history so important in Alaska's past. Worth the stop at Delta Junction

This is a treasure tucked away in Delta Junction. A wonderful museum that was an actual roadhouse along the Valdez Trail. The community has brought it to life with authentic stories and items of the period, knowledgable local folk and quaint events that are charming. A great piece of significant Ak history, and it's FREE!

The cabin is amazing. There's a lot of history inside and a lot of the original pieces to look at. What's really cool, so make sure you check it out, is that they have the story from when the United States Army moved the cabin to its current location from its former location just by helicopters and a lot of...
