Discover the Heritage of Talkeetna

The Talkeetna Historical Society (THS) was founded in 1972 by residents concerned with protecting Talkeetna’s historical sites. THS is a non-profit organization which safeguards the uniqueness of this rural Alaskan community, Talkeetna, in the preservation of its historical past in its museum and its many other historical buildings and trails.

Fundraising events, along with museum admissions, enable THS to continue work on important projects such as the stabilization of Belle’s Barn site, a historic site connected to Talkeetna’s gold mining past located near the end of Talkeetna’s Main Street close to the banks of the Susitna River, and its accompanying  interpretive trail. In addition to a variety of exhibits, the Museum, once home of the Territory of Alaska’s Talkeetna School, has a unique museum store, which offers a large selection of books about the area and its historical past. Please join THS in helping to protect and preserve Talkeetna’s history by becoming a member and by making a contribution to the Talkeetna Historical Society.

Talkeetna was placed on the National Register of Historic Places April 26, 1993.
