This old Railroad Depot was completed in 1923. In that year on July 15 president Warren G. Harding drove the golden spike at Nenana, signifying the completion of the Alaska Railroad. The presidential railroad car 'Denali', that Harding used in 1923, is now on display in Pioneer Park (Alaskaland) in Fairbanks.
The depot was renovated in 1988. It houses the Alaska State Railroad Museum.

I remember it well! Was there in 1960-61 for the BMEWS project. Maybe I'll get back sometime.
