This Antique Auto Museum In Alaska Will Make You Long For The Good Old Days

When you travel through Fairbanks, it is easy to imagine life a century ago. Many people live in dry cabins (without plumbing) dotted along unpaved roads that wind into the forested hillsides, just like the pioneers of a century ago. The scenery, the cold and the long, dark nights haven’t changed, but the cars and clothes certainly have.

At the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, you can see the cars that have driven the back roads of the last frontier as long as there have been cars, and the fashions of the folks who drove them. This fascinating attraction is a real crowd pleaser, packed with gorgeous cars, perfectly maintained historical fashion and history lessons at every turn. Spend an afternoon in the past and learn about the history of Alaskans and the automobiles that got them around.
