The wonderful lady giving the tour was very knowledgeable. She walked us through the whole house, which was build for one of the first families in Anchorage. She answered all my children's endless questions. I brought 4 children ages 13-7 and they all enjoyed seeing the historical items and learning about early Anchorage.
Cool museum. This place was listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1978.
