Description

Home of the Delta Historical Society Museum, Rika's Roadhouse at Big Delta State Historical Park is in a ten-acre state park on the shores of the Tanana River. The Valdez-to-Fairbanks Trail ran through here and continued across the river, aided by a ferry. The roadhouse was built to accommodate the travelers and is a National Historic Site. The museum is a separate building behind the roadhouse and has displays of artifacts from the Alaskan life. There is a beautiful barn and two other historic display cabins set up to show how the military lived as they put in a telegraph line through here which opened up communication to Washington for the first time. There is also a gift shop, restaurant, and animals and birds to help create the right ambiance for this beautiful setting. Historic pamphlets are available for self tours and guided tours are always available.

Admission
