Talkeetna Historical Society

Walking Tour app

If you go to either ITunes or Android app store you can download the Talkeetna Historic Downtown Walking Tour app for free. Once you download the app, you can download the tour of downtown. It will take you from one end of Main Street to the other and around to the alley ways and the airstrip (on the National Register of Historic Places) and other lesser known locations.

Historical Society T-shirts
We have a new aviation-related t-shirt highlighting a great historic photo of Don Sheldon's plane from the 1950s.  We also have a few leftover Centennial t-shirts.  All for $18.

Museum store

Even if you don't come in the museum, you can stop by and visit our small store full of Alaskana and Talkeetna books, posters, a bit of jewelry and official Alaska Railroad merchandise.

Our Talkeetna Book!

Long time local resident Tom Sisul and his niece Joy Keniston-Longrie have complied a largely pictorial collection of history from Talkeetna's ancient roots to recent times, which comes together nicely to show how unique this area has always been! This book features a forward from local area historian and long time Talkeetna resident and author Roberta Sheldon.
