These 8 Old Restaurants In Alaska Have Stood The Test Of Time
Though Alaska didn’t enter statehood until 1959, there were still plenty of established restaurants and bakeries all over the state from when it was a territory. The gold rush brought many people up to Alaska and those mouths had to be fed! The restaurants that are still standing today have clearly stood the test of time, but with all the nooks and crannies around our state it’s hard to find them all. If you know of any other restaurants that have been around since Alaska’s early years, let us know!

What other awesome Alaska restaurants feel like they’ve been around forever?
Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
