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 restoration of Ole Dahl cabin, work on society property, protection of Belle’s Barn historic 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.
For the next few months the photos from our Covid19 photo contest will be exhibited at the Flying Squirrel Bakery Cafe, mile 11 of the Talkeetna Spur Road. Stop in when you get a cup of coffee and take a peek.
