Knik was an important community, predating Anchorage and Wasilla. This museum building is located where it was originally built, giving the visitor a vivid image of how much the surroundings have changed when they compare it to the maps and photographs there.

located at the original site of the village of Knik, the museum provides the visitor with many artifacts from the early days of the community. Additionally you can see the history of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in Alaska.

this old building is the attraction. The new road destroyed the historic town of Knik. Darn those bulldozers. The Knik Bar Roadhouse is a real Alaskan dive, hamburgers don't kill you and you can sit down by the lake and eat them. Folks at the Knik Bar and Roadhouse are friendly too.
