The Lavelle Wheelhouse

The Lavelle Wheelhouse is the original, restored wheelhouse of the Lavelle Young, the boat that brought E.T. Barnette the founder of Fairbanks up the Chena River. It was abandoned in McGrath, Alaska in 1920, and brought to Fairbanks in pieces in 1972. The original steering wheel is now on display in the Pioneer Museum.
