Nenana is a small town with lots of history located between Fairbanks and Denali National Park. Once a gold rush supply point, it continues to be a home port for barges and tugs on the rivers and a stop on the Alaska Railroad. The Visitor Center is located at the fork in the road leading to downtown.

Behind the Visitor Center is an old wooden tug boat that started it's life in Juneau and then moved to the northern rivers, operating until it was condemned by an inspector in Nenana where it's been every since.

The Nenana Railway Station is located adjacent to the barge docks on the waterfront. It houses a museum but we didn't look inside.

Across the street from the dock and station is the Moocher's Bar. We couldn't resist a picture for all of our South Sound family and friends who grew up listening to the brewery whistle.

The town has a lot of one hundred year old log cabins like this one.

You're encouraged to stay awhile.
