Can you imagine that the old and decrepit Buckner Building in Whittier used to be the talk of the town all over the state of Alaska?
If you don’t believe me, you soon will after I tell you all the incredibly cool things the Buckner Building used to be before time and mother nature took their toll. The Buckner Building, which used to proudly be one of the largest in Alaska, was a U.S. Military building named after General Simon Buckner, the highest-ranking Pacific Theater U.S. Military Officer who died in action during WWI.
Even though it’s run down, the Buckner Building still proves to be somewhat useful as a ski park for this guy!
