Experience Talkeetna’s History

Initially developed as a gold-mining center in the early 20th century, today downtown Talkeetna is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Talkeetna Historical Society maintains a museum that is located in the original territory of the Alaska Talkeetna School building that opened in 1936. The museum’s artifacts depict early life in the Last Frontier and the settlers, Alaska Native people, gold miners and trappers who influenced the community. The museum is open year-round and the passionate staff tell the stories of Talkeetna’s past. Go next door to the Ole Dahl Cabin, an original trapper cabin that is filled with antiques dating back to 1916.
